Cheops Books Projects 2017:
Cheops Books LLC is in the midst of numerous book projects. On May 1 it is going to publish the Salisbury Plot, book 2 of the the Edward Ware Thrillers at War Series.
Who is the saboteur following Dora about on the doomed Morro Castle in September of 1934? Who is the terrorist who set fire to the first class writing room on the ocean liner? Who followed Dora and her new husband, Colonel Sir Edward Ware, to Salisbury Cathedral on their wedding day? A creature in a black robe is wielding a sword in the balcony and clanging the bell. The freak seems to summon the legions of the dead who surround them in the hills peppered with bronze age burial mounds, who seem to rise from the cloisters in the center of the cathedral where unknown dead from the Middle Ages still reside. Why does she see her new husband handing money over to the saboteur on her wedding day in a hidden garden of Ware Hall? What does it mean to be married to Colonel Sir Edward Ware? When she finds out the truth it will change Dora’s life forever.
But Cheops Books LLC also has many other projects up its sleeve. Later this year it will published the Old Faithful Plot, still another release in the Edward Ware Thrillers at War Series.
While they are hiding out from Dora’s husband at the Old Faithful Lodge in 1933, Dora and Edward are also hiding Lawrence maps that Churchill has given them and which Hitler would do anything to get his hands on. Enter Helga and Herr von Wessel, Hitler’s top spies. They warn Colonel Sir Edward Ware and Dora that either they hand over the top secret maps, key to world domination, or they will blow up Yellowstone National Park. They will turn the famous geyser basin into volcanic rubble – and the rest of America, too, which would be buried in volcanic ash just like Pompeii. And if that doesn’t work they have an even darker plot up their sleeves, one that would change history itself.
In addition there is an upcoming German translation of volume 1 of Captive at the Berghof. We are now publishing it in serial form on the website: http://www.edwardwarethrillers.org. When it is completed it will be released.
Hitler has found out about Colonel Sir Edward Ware’s secret undercover activities for Winston Churchill, and he’s playing hardball. He kidnaps Thomasina, Edward’s daughter, and won’t give the child back unless Edward and his wife, Dora, hand over the key to world domination – the Lawrence maps. They’d better do something fast before Thomasina truly becomes Hitler’s daughter.
So there is much scheduled for summer 2017 and later. Keep following the Cheops Books website’s blog and subscribe to the Edward Ware Thrillers Newsletter.

Dora and Edward Meet A Dinosaur:
Dora and Edward have encountered all sorts of evil forces from Adolf Hitler himself to his secret agents Herr and Helga von Wessel to war itself. But in the Old Faithful Plot, another Edward Ware Thrillers at War novel to be published by Cheops Books LLC later this year, they encounter another kind of enemy all together — a dinosaur.
Now Edward Ware Thrillers at war is an historical novel. It is not fantasy or science fiction. So how is such a claim possible? They must visit northern Arizona to meet Churchill’s spy at the Stone Tree House at the Petrified Forest along Route 66. They are handing over important documents. While searching for the agent, they run into a creature from the Jurassic Period right at their foot, one of only two poinsonous lizards in all of North America — the Gila Monster.
The creature can grow up to two feet long. He is striped pink and black and flicks his tongue as you might expect. He is not an apparition that Dora and Edward want to take lightly or fool around with —- nor Hitler either. The Third Reich must step aside. The Gila Monster has his own secret agenda.

Dora and Edward Take Epic Journey Around The World:
In the early 1920’s shortly after Edward surfaced from hiding from German operatives for two years Dora Benley, now Mrs. Byrne, and Edward Ware are forced to make an unexpected trip around the world — all in the line of duty, of course.
Edward is trysting with Dora at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City where they have decided to meet whenever Edward can get leave from his duties at Mid-East Headquarters in Cairo. They run into a team of German operatives sent by the newly rising star of the German National Socialist Party, Adolf Hitler. Hitler has heard that they carry valuable information and that the former Kaiser was tracking them. Now he is interested, too, in the Lawrence maps, key to world domination.
To escape Dora and Edward take off across the Atlantic on an ocean liner. But when arriving in Britain they can hide only so long at the estate of Winston Churchill, Edward’s confederate in the map plot. They head across the Chanel into France and then west through Germany itself chased by Hitler’s agents. They don’t stop as they head through Easter Europe and Iran and Afghanistan, avoiding Russia which at that point was embroiled in revolution and civil war. They even flee across the Pacific in this epic journey to save the military maps that Edward is sworn to protect.

Cheops Books will publish their trip notes about this journey around the world along with photographs including the journal that Dora kept along the way. This Edward Ware Thrillers at War novel as yet has no title. In fact we will hold a contest where you can suggest one. But we just wanted to give you, the reader, notice that you soon will be able to find it on Amazon Kindle.

Salisbury Plot And The Gothic Tradition
Cheops Books LLC is following the Gothic Tradition in publishing Salisbury Plot, the latest in the series of Edward Ware Thrillers at War. The setting opens on a doomed ship at sea that is about to burn. There are secret arsonists aboard the Morro Castle. They are carrying out secret, unnamed missions for unknown instigators. That all fits with novels from the past such as Jane Eyre who gets employed as a governess for a mysterious man with all sorts of problems whom she knows nothing about.
Dora proceeds to England to marry her lover who seems to be involved in an intrigue with the very arsonist who burned down the ship on which she was sailing. She cannot imagine why anymore than Jane Eyre can imagine why her master is keeping a madwoman in the attic who sneaks down one night and attacks her in her bed.
Dora marries Edward in Salisbury Cathedral while a freak shrieks from the balcony and terrifies the guests just as Jane appears at an altar with Mr. Rochester only to be stopped by mysterious vistors who object to her marriage on the grounds that Mr. Rochester is already married to their sister.
These are the conventions of Gothic novels since the late eighteenth century. They lend a certain atmosphere to the novel that is hard to miss. Read Salisbury Plot to be published on Amazon Kindle on May 1.

Salisbury Plot: Who Is After Dora?
Mrs. Byrne, the former Dora Benley, approaches her wedding at Salisbury Cathedral in the south of England with great trepidation. Not only did an unknown saboteur sink her ship, the Morro Castle, only a couple weeks ago, widowing her and sending her catapulting to England to marry her long-time lover, Colonel Sir Edward Ware. Now at the medieval cathedral where everyone in Edward’s family got married, a spook has decided to haunt the balcony above the aisle where she is marching to join Edward to become Dora, Lady Ware. The spook clangs the bell. The she-devil shrieks, cries, and laughs in a way that echoes to the rafters of the cathedral. Who is trying to prevent the marriage? Her former husband, Michael, is dead. Is it an agent sent from Nazi Germany to steal the Lawrence maps, key to world domination, that Colonel Sir Edward Ware is hiding? She had better figure it out, or Dora could be dead before she says, “I do.”
Preorder Salisbury Plot, the next in the Edward Ware Thrillers at War Series, on Kindle for only $6.95. It will be published on May 1.
