Planet iPad Daily Free Book Alert, Sunday, October 17: Chinatown Beat, the debut novel in Henry Chang's NYPD Detective Jack Yu Series, plus Losing Role, a World War II Espionage Thriller by Steve Anderson (Today's Sponsor), and over 100 more fully updated and category-sorted free Kindle Store ebook listings for you iPad

Red Jade, Henry Chang's latest and third novel in the Detective Jack Yu crime series is in the process of being released (hopefully for the iPad and Kindle, although there doesn't currently appear to be a pre-order page), so the series' debut novel leads our listing of free contemporary titles in the Kindle Store this morning....

But first ... a word from our sponsor....

"An excellent WWII espionage thriller that transcends the genre, making it a story that you don't have to be a history buff to enjoy." — The New Podler Review of Books

by Steve Anderson

In the grim final winter of World War II a failed German actor, Max Kaspar, is forced to join a desperate secret mission in which he must impersonate an enemy American officer. So Max cooks up his own fanatical plan — he'll use his false identity to escape tyranny and war and flee to the America he'd once abandoned.

Max the performer is hardly a soldier let alone a double-crossing commando, yet in the deadly Battle of the Bulge he has to fool battle-shocked American GIs as well as dodge discovery by his reckless German comrades. Belgium's Ardennes forest becomes a snowbound hell and the magical America he'd loved is lost to him, replaced by a somber invading juggernaut. In the end, Max's gambles will lead him to a grim but honest payoff.

Part espionage thriller, part expatriate noir and the first in a series, The Losing Role is based on an actual false flag operation that's been made infamous in legend but in reality was a doomed farce. In all the tragic details and with some dark humor, this is the story of an aspiring talent who got in over his head and tried to break free.
Click here to download The Losing Role (or a free sample) to your Kindle, iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, BlackBerry, Android-compatible, PC or Mac and start reading within 60 seconds!
