Edward Ware Thrillers Classics:

Cheops Books LLC wants to draw attention to a new section of its website at http://www.edwardwarethrillers.org. It is called Edward Ware Thrillers Classics. So far only Julia: A Romance is listed there. Soon Julia will be joined by a host of other novels about the past, especially the ancient past. These novels are NOT part of the Edward Ware Thrillers at War Series or the Edward Ware Thrillers YA Series.

Julia has every reason to wish that she had not been born the daughter of a Roman senator during the Roman Civil Wars of Marius and Sulla. Her father, Rufus, is trying to escape the proscriptions lists and save his life by betrothing his only daughter in marriage to Marcus Sisenna.

Marcus Sisenna is the right hand man of Lucius Cornelius Sulla Felix, one of the leading men of Rome of the day. Rufus needs his armies and the protection both Sulla and Sisenna can provide.
But Julia does not want to marry a man who has already had five wives and who is just marrying her for her father’s money and estates. She does not want to be added to his collection of trophies. Julia wants personal happiness despite the time period into which she has been born.

Her father thinks only of keeping his wealth and estates together. Her divorced mother is interested only in her own lovers. To whom shall Julia turn for assistance? The answer may surprise you. For it is obviously just the opposite of what the desperate Julia might expect.

Tobyann Aparisi listed this following review on Goodreads: I won this book for an honest review on Goodreads. This is a very entertaining well thought out thought-provoking read! A period story that has a bit of truth to it. The characters are very well done and the backdrop to the story is well defined. The story itself is very engaging and page-turning, can’t wait to see what happens next type of flow. I highly recommend this story to anyone that likes a historical type of reading with very interesting and fresh characters.

Holly Lutmer has also added this review on Goodreads. “I enjoyed this book, it was eventful and interesting! Parts of the book were a bit confusing and a tad unrealistic, but it’s a novel right? The only problem was that some of the characters did not translate onto my kindle which also could have contributed to the confusing part. Overall I think it was a pretty good book.”

Dora And Edward Visit Reykjavik and Corner Brook:

In Murder at Hamlet’s Castle Dora and Edward have a wild time in store arriving in Denmark, Iceland, and northern Canada in Corner Brook. It is near the Bay of Newfoundland first charted by Captain Cook.

After narrowly escaping the von Wessels in Murder at Hamlet’s Castle, Hitler’s chief spies, in Santa Fe while on leave from Mid East Quarters in Cairo, Edward and Dora don’t know where to go next and where to hide the Lawrence maps, key to world domination. They have just been watching a production of Hamlet when they get a note from Winston Churchill. He says that he and Clemmie got locked in the dungeon of Hamlet’s Castle in Helsingor, Denmark. It was where the Danish army used to be billeted in the Middle Ages. Churchill and Clemmie had to raise Hamlet’s ghost screaming to be let out.

It just occurred to Winston it would be a perfect location to hide the much sought after military maps. No one would ever suspect they were there — and if they did they would never be able to escape with their lives let alone the prize that Hitler has been seeking for years. But after a huge chase scene to get away from states they meet unexpected obstacles in the castle in 1934. The mistress who keeps the place up turns out to be the perfect Nazi spy in cahoots with Hitler and the von Wessels. Once again Dora and Edward need to escape.

But this time they meet an unexpected ally in the famous Dane himself, Shakespeare’s most famous character. They uncover Hamlet’s secret notebooks that tell them just what they need to know. Others were cornered in this castle long ago. Hamlet tells them how he escaped in a tale that upsets all previous notions of the man, his character, and his fate in Murder at Hamlet’s Castle.

Helga Von Wessel Book Covers:

Helga von Wessel likes to appear on book covers for Cheops Books LLC. So far you can find her on three book covers: Captive at the Berghof: Part 1, Hitler’s Chief Spy, and Unlocking Trinity.

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.

The villainess, Helga von Wessel, Hitler’s chief spy, struts boldly from page to page of this thriller with Europe at her back and all sorts of ambitious notions in her head during the lead up to WW2. As far as she is concerned it isn’t Hitler’s Reich. It is Helga’s Reich. She will wrap the hero, Colonel Sir Edward Ware, Churchill’s spy, around her little finger to prove it. Nor does it matter what Edward’s American wife, Dora, says. Hitler’s Chief Spy is the fifth volume of the Edward Ware Thrillers at War Series.

The Ware’s little girl has been kidnapped by Hitler and forced to live with him at the Berghof. But when Hitler commits suicide in his Berlin Bunker on April 30, 1945, what happens to the child who has been indoctrinated as a Nazi, who has forgotten that English is her native language?

Her biological father, General Lord Edward Ware, must defy Eisenhower’s order to leave Berlin to the Russians. He must get to her before Stalin’s henchwoman does. It becomes a race to Trinity in the wilds of New Mexico in the birth trauma of the Cold War.

Debate On Website For Old Faithful Plot:

If you missed the debate on June 16, the day of publication for Old Faithful Plot, you can now read it on the website.

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.

Armistice Plot and Paris Peace Plot Joint Edition:

Later this year Armistice Plot and Paris Peace Plot will be published as a joint edition.

The novel Armistice Plot begins at an archaeological site at Carchemish in 1914 as Edward Ware’s father and Leonard Woolley close down their dig in the face of war. As Edward peers into the tent at midnight he sees a dark-robed intruder brushing past the figurine of an ancient Hittite king that he and T.E.Lawrence excavated at Carchemish this summer in 1914.

.Is this a spy sent by the Germans to steal the maps Lawrence is sketching for the British military? Edward first encounters the vamp who will haunt the rest of his life prowling among the finds, looking for the military maps that his fellow archaeologist T. E.Lawrence is drawing for the British government.

All during the ensuing Great War Edward must fight to keep the maps secret. Finally during the Battle of Damascus Edward and Lawrence defeat the Turks and make them sue for peace. They will sign the Armistice ending the war. But the vamp, though imprisoned in Damascus, escapes. Edward must chase her down.

There are hints that she is fleeing to join with the Austrian corporal, Adolf Hitler, who is beginning a new movement in Munich. Signs of a new war appear on the horizon though the first has just come to an end with an Armistice that isn’t worth the paper it is written on.

This is an historical thriller about Edward’s contest to the death first with the German Kaiser and then with Hitler himself. It will determine the woman he will marry and the woman he will not. It will drive him to the brink of madness in a century gone insane.

In Paris Peace Plot Miss Dora Benley has an enemy. She does not know who it is. Somebody is watching her board the Lusitania on May 1, 1915 on the Cunard pier in New York. Aboard the ship eyes follow her everywhere she goes.

When she arrives in England her fiance’s gardener watches Miss Dora Benley, the American heiress, perpetually. When Lieutenant Edward Ware is off fighting with Lawrence of Arabia, saboteurs make her Pittsburgh trolley jump the tracks and crash. She discovers a murderous thug inside her shed in the South Hills of Pittsburgh where her father has his estate.

She has reason to believe that the terrorists are following her fiance during his battles with Lawrence in the Syrian Desert. Near the end of the war Edward is kidnapped and disappears. She travels to Europe to find him and meets with Lawrence of Arabia during the Paris Peace Conference in early 1919. But sure enough dark eyes once again follow her every move.

What do these mysterious saboteurs want with Dora? Edward? They have followed her and her fiance through the entire Great War and beyond. It seems that despite the Paris Peace Conference, there will never be peace for Dora and Edward again.

Dora, Edward, and Churchill Come Up With Crazy Plot:

How about this one for an Edward Ware Thrillers at War plot? Edward and Dora have to leave England suddenly upon word from Churchill. They are being followed by Hitler’s top spies such as the von Wessels. They lay low over the weekend in Rotterdam. They don’t hear anything so they come back to England only to discover that the threat is even bigger than before. They continue on their way and come ashore in Valencia, Spain.

They wait for their contact at the aquarium to hand over the Lawrence maps, key to world domination. But they find him dead floating on top of the shark tank instead.

Never to be deterred they head on to Giardini Naxos in Sicily. It sounds out of the way. They head for the slopes of Mount Etna where there had recently been an eruption. They head into the Godfather’s villa to hand over the maps on a tip only to have gunfire start outside.

They escape back to the boat and head for Venice. There only the island of Burano where they make lace they find their contact for handing over the maps. They head away thinking they had go ack to Britain. But no sooner do they hand the Lawrence maps over than their contact gets shot.

They plan to meet their contact in Sibenik in Croatia. They figure no one among Hitler’s spies will think to venture here. They are standing by a column in the ruins of the Diocletian Palace when they see the von Wessels themselves.

They make a journey to Dubrovnik and head south to Cavtat. On a palm-lined walkway they stop thinking they see their contact at a table on the sidewalk. But when they approach it is Helga von Wessel herself in her sun hat wearing sunglasses.

On the island of Sardinia they leave the town of Cagliari to head for the archaeological ruins of Nora, the ancient Carthaginian city. The archaeologist in charge of the dig is supposed to be their contact. But when they see him, he waves them away with a glance at the von Wessels. They have heard of Nora, too.

Finally they stop on Gibraltar on their way out of the Mediterranean heading back to Britain. They went their way up the rock. Instead of running into their contact, Dora finds some Gibraltar apes. She might as well hand the Lawrence maps to the apes, knowing the von Wessels could not outwit a monkey.

But when she tries the ape says, “Thank you!” She realizes that it is their contact in disguise. They have finally succeeded. They can head back to Britain to see Churchill and say mission accomplished.

Armistice Plot will be published by Cheops Books LLC on October 1, 2018, one hundred years after Lawrence took Damascus at the end of the Great War. That led to the Armistice.

New Goodreads Reviews of Salisbury Affair:

Cheops Books published Salisbury Affair on May 4 and did a big Goodreads Giveaway of 100 Kindle books. Since then we have had two new reader reviews added to the Goodreads page for the mystery novel. We would like to share them with you now.

Ginger Pollard: This was a Goodreads win. Thank you, Goodreads. A fast paced little mystery. Enjoyable and laugh out loud funny at times.

Mary: it was amazing. A great storyline that kept my attention throughout.

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 on 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 Dora 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.
