Hot New Kindle Books

The Whole Truth –Preview
In this “seven day old” kindle book, Nicolas Creel is a man on a mission. He heads up the world’s largest defense contractor, the Ares Corporation. Dick Pender is the man Creel retains to “perception manage” his company to even more riches by manipulating conflicts. But Creel may have an even grander plan in mind. Shaw, a man with no first name and a truly unique past, has a different agenda. Reluctantly doing the bidding of a secret multi-national intelligence agency, he travels the globe to keep it safe and at peace. Willing to do anything to get back to the top of her profession, Katie James is a journalist who has just gotten the break of a lifetime: the chance to interview the sole survivor of a massacre that has left every nation stunned.
