Title: The Body in the Bed
Author: Jerold Last
Description:

The Body in the Bed is a suspenseful whodunit mystery set in exotic Montevideo, Uruguay.  Murder and espionage are seamlessly mixed with the political and cultural aspects of modern day life in Uruguay.  The protagonists include Los Angeles-based private detective Roger Bowman, his wife, Biochemist Suzanne Foster, and Paraguayan policeman and international spy, Eduardo Gomez.  And, of course, the body in the bed, who we meet very early in the novel.  Who killed him and why?

The reader will not only enjoy a good mystery, but will smell and taste (at least virtually) the local foods and wines of Uruguay, visit the local attractions of Montevideo, and learn a little history of a small corner of South America half a world away from the United States.  The plot is carefully researched and based on real events occurring in today's news. 

The Body in the Bed is part of the author's South American mystery series, all e-books available on-line from Amazon's Kindle Store.  Each book in the series can be read on its own, in any order.  The series does feature recurring characters, so you can revisit the series to find out more about what happens to the characters, at least the ones who survive to the end of this thriller!

Title: Flight Attendant Typical Work Day
Author: Brian M Godfrey
Description:

The purpose of this book is, to provide information on what it is like to work as an airline flight attendant. I have included a typical work day, while working with a regional airline called, "Chautauqua Airlines". 

I worked in the airline industry for over 25 years. I worked as a flight attendant for 17 years with: America West Airlines, Comair, and Chautauqua Airlines. Without a doubt, working as a flight attendant was the best possible career. I was able to travel to different cities on an every day basis. 

These days, applying to work as an airline flight attendant is extremely competitive. Most airlines receive hundreds, or thousands of job applications and resumes each month. As we have seen, many airlines have merged with other airlines, or simply gone out of business. As a result, there are fewer airline flight attendant positions. As difficult as it may seem, if you have the sincere desire, motivation, and a "never give up" attitude, you can and will achieve your goal of working as an airline flight attendant. Please enjoy this sample chapter. I will be publishing a much longer and detailed book soon. 

Thank you.

Title: Flight Attendant Training
Description:

www.flightattendantconsultant.com

In this article, I discuss what to expect while attending initial flight attendant training.

I worked in the airline industry for over 25 years. I worked as an airline flight attendant for over 17 years with America West Airlines, Comair, and Chautauqua Airlines.

Attending initial flight attendant training is challenging, difficult and stressful. However, it is necessary to get through and pass all the required examd to enable you to begin your airline flight attendant career. The airline flight attendant training, is between 4-8 weeks in length. The training is usually held at that airline's main headquarters. As an example, when I went through the initial flight attendant training with Comair, the training was held in a building right next to Comair's headquarters located in Erlanger, KY, very close to the CVG Airport.

My advice to anyone attending initial flight attendant training is, to put everything else on hold. You will need to focus your energy solely on passing the exams, and learning the material. While attending initial flight attendant training with Comair, we started out with 53 people in our class. However, at the conclusion of the 4 1/2 week training, only 27 people actually graduated. It is a very intense, and challenging training course. However, if you can pass all the exams, and get through training successfully, you will look back at this training as a time you will

Title: The Matador Murders
Author: Jerold Last
Description:

The Matador Murders is set in Montevideo, Uruguay and Santiago, Chile, both cities the author has lived and worked in and knows well, where Roger and Suzanne have to solve another murder.  With apologies to reality, the novel's Montevideo is much like the lawless Chicago of the prohibition years.  That's part of the fun of writing fiction--an author can turn one of the most law-abiding and civilized cities in the world into the wild west of the 19th Century U.S. frontier with the stroke of a pen.  Actually, it's more the click of a keyboard nowadays.

The plot of this suspenseful whodunit thriller is based very loosely on Dashiell Hammett's classic novel, The Red Harvest, the basis for the movie Last Man Standing.  The book features lots of action and a suspenseful storyline.  Who is the mysterious Mr. X behind all the killings?

The cover photo is of the Pocitos neighborhood of Montevideo, on the Rio de la Plata.  If you use a very strong magnifying glass, you can actually see the apartment we rented while we were living there.

The novel may be downloaded FREE from Kindle Unlimited.

Title: C.I.A. Brat
Author: Ken Albertsen
Description:

Tells the true story of a boy, from birth to age 22, who changed schools 11 times, located in five countries employing four languages. The dad was a career CIA man who had segued from OSS after WWII. The mom was not-so-typical housewife of the 50's and 60's who, among other odd things, tried getting her three boys hooked on booze and cigarettes before they were teens.  Musical influences affected the boy showcased in the memoir, at many junctures in his life. He started gigging on blues guitar in smoky blues clubs before the age of 17. He fronted a six piece R&B band gigging all over the Wash. DC region a few years later. That band had a 3-piece horn section and half the songs were originals. The reference to 'drugs' in the subtitle pertains to the mind-altering drugs which most teenagers dealt with in those heady times. Drugs can be used to 'get kicks' for sure, but the CIA story delves deeper, and articulates how some drugs can enhance deep spiritual explorations. 

This memoir is suitable for any age group over 10, and perhaps most appreciated by adults. The author has published 11 books on as many different topics, including Tibetan Buddhism, political satire, homesteading, Thai language, fasting, Himalayan Explorers, and even a dollop of science fiction. The author resides in Thailand and runs an outdoor Adventure Park called Boomerang.

Title: The Surreal Killer
Author: Jerold Last
Description:

The Surreal Killer is a multi-5-star psychological mystery that seamlessly mixes the genre of whodunit thriller with the theme of travel to exotic places to introduce readers to the regional culture and history of the Incas, while a mysterious modern-day murderer proves that we reap what we sow.  This gripping novel takes us deep into the mind of a serial killer as the suspense mounts to a shocking conclusion.  The story blends murder, intrigue, and the 20th Century history of Chile with the genesis of a serial killer.  The Surreal Killer was an Indie Book of the Day award winner in 2013.  This novel is the second entry in the Roger and Suzanne South American mystery series, which has been designed so that each book is complete in its own right and the series may be read in any order.  Interestingly, Amazon also ranks The Surreal Killer highly (top 25) in the category of Nonfiction-Travel in South America-Peru, as the characters visit Lima, Cuzco, and Macchu Pichu in Peru on route to Northern Chile's Atacama Desert region.

Title: Unbearably Deadly
Author: Jerold Last
Description:

An apparent accidental attack by a bear kills two tourists in Alaska's Denali National Park, a huge natural wilderness in Alaka's heartland with only one well guarded entrance and exit.  The novel, written by an author who has clearly been there, combines all of the elements of the classic locked room mystery in a six million acre room.  The plot is full of twists and turns.  Conspiracies abound and the truth is much more complicated than it appears to be.  This is Roger and Suzanne's most difficult case to date, with no clues, no suspects, and little or no help available from the local police. All they have to work with is their own gut feeling that all is not what it seems to be and some help from their friends.  This tough and gritty suspenseful psychological thriller contains some scenes of violence, but is a suitable read for young adults and for readers who prefer their mystery books with clean language and no graphic sex.

This novel can be read as a series entry or on its own.  The story is complete without reference to earlier books in the series.

Title: Women of the Way: Embracing the Camino
Author: Jane V. Blanchard
Description:

In 2011, I walked 500 miles on the Camino de Santiago in northern Spain. As I walked, I talked with other female modern-day pilgrims. Women of the Way: Embracing the Camino is about my adventure and the conversations I had with these women.

Learn about the Camino—its beauty and challenges, how to prepare for a long walk, what daily life is like along the way, the changes in perspective and growth, and the lasting friendships that develop.

For me, there is the person I was before the Camino, and the one after. There isn't a day since completing the Camino that I have not thought about it.

I first learned about the Camino in Shirley MacLaine's book "The Camino: A journey of the Spirit." After reading it I wondered why a 60-year old woman would want to do such a thing. Years latter I friend talked about his recent adventures on the Camino, and I was hooked. When my husband asked me how I would like to celebrate my 60th birthday, the was only once answer: to walk the Camino. It was my first long walk.

I hope you will enjoy me along the Way.
