Cheops Books LLC Betrayed By Russians:
Cheops Books LLC is about to publish a novel in the Edward Ware Thriller Series called Salisbury Affair. It is about Dora and Edward’s wedding at Salisbury Cathedral. We are having a Facebook Party on May 4, and the debate is going to be about this subject.
We here at Cheops Books LLC feel betrayed that the Russians attacked Salisbury. It is as if they attacked our novel. That is a place that the author, Dora Benley, has incorporated into the world of the Edward Ware Thrillers at War novels. It is the town closest to Edward’s estate, Ware Hall, the ancestral home of his family that we find out later goes back to Roman times.
Salisbury Cathedral is where Dora and Edward were married. Ware Hall is practically burned to the ground in Captive at the Berghof by Helga and Hitler in September of 1940 during the Blitz, killing Edward’s mother. That is enough of a profanation.
But this chemical weapon of the Russians is far worse. After World War 2, the Wares renovate Ware Hall with Dora’s money. Leopold later completes the job as he reveals in Dark 3: Special Edition. But you cannot renovate what is contaminated by chemical weapons. It is like radiation. It might be there for a long time and you wouldn’t want to visit again. It turns the town of Salisbury, which our tour guide in 2012 called “God’s own country” along with all of Wiltshire, into Love Canal — or even Chernobyl.

Tweets And Team Players:
Here are two recent tweets I received on my Twitter page that I don’t look at very often. Here are two recent tweets by Trump:
1)Ed Gillespie will be a great Governor of Virginia. His opponent doesn’t even show up to meetings/work, and will be VERY weak on crime!
2)Ed Gillespie will turn the really bad Virginia economy #’s around, and fast. Strong on crime, he might even save our great statues/heritage!
What is wrong with either one of these tweets?
As far as the leading Republicans go, I am shocked that they don’t act like team players and vote Republican just because Trump is the current Republican President. That is what I said to Senator McCain. Of course in this day and age even real team players such as sports players can’t even pull it together and stand for the national anthem. If it were up to me, I’d fire the lot of them. At least the military has to pull together like a team. Always did. Goes back 1000’s of years.
Colonel Sir Edward Ware was in His Majesty’s Armed Forces. He had to defer to his Prime Minister even though he did not agree with him. In a classic scene of Captive at the Berghof, Edward and his wife, Dora, Lady Ware, are paying a visit to Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain. In 1938 the Prime Minister tells Edward when he is going to visit Hitler at the Berghof that Great Britain wants peace at any cost. Edward says that he will have to remember that —- peace at any cost.
Edward must work underground with Churchill to fight the Nazis until Churchill can become Prime Minister in 1940. Then Edward and his causes can come out into the open during the Second World War. Until then he must be a team player with a stiff upper lip.

What can Edward and Churchill do to avoid the straight arm salute in this alternative history thriller?
Dark Horse is book five of the Edward Ware Thrillers At War Series.
Here are some early reader comments: Do you have anything to add?
1)A very awesome book cover December 12, 2016
1940, Coronado Island, CA. Benley Compound. Mr. Winthrop Benley & Mrs. Etta May Benley, were entertaining Dora Ware (wife/daughter, nee Benley), & Colonel Sir Edward Ware (husband/son-in-law). Lieutenant Hoare was to make up a Republican Presidential candidate campaign schedule for Winthrop. Later what would happen to Wendel Willkie (aka Dark Horse)? Who is Helga von Wessel?
I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review. Only an honest one.
A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written pre-& WWII historical fiction book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great pre-& WWII historical fiction movie, or better yet a mini TV series. To be continued. A very easy rating of 5 stars.
Thank you for the free Goodreads; MakingConnections; Cheops Books LLC; RC; paperback book

2)Obviously a book backed by lots of research, I would recommend it for the World War 2 history buff in your life. It wasn’t really my style, but a good book nonetheless.
3)This book was an interesting “what if” reading experience. As far as I know, this book was well researched and I think the history buff and WWII buff would enjoy this book.
