New Cheops Books LLC Brochure

Cheops Books LLC will issue a new brochure. We will feature four new historical thrillers by Dora Benley: Egyptian Spy, Paris Peace Plot, Armistice Plot, and Old Faithful Affair. It will be sent to a library list provided by the ALA in late June in New Orleans, but if you want one just ask through the Contact area of the website.

In Egyptian Spy Dora, Lady Ware, her husband, Colonel Sir Edward Ware, his boss, Wickie, and Wickie’s wife, Jane, all travel to the Sphinx outside Cairo for the Christmas holidays when Edward’s mother, the Dowager Lady Ware, comes to visit in the 1930’s between the wars.

There are mystery figures hanging about even on top of the Sphinx and Dora cannot quite make them out. When she is left alone for a moment, a stalker approaches her and threatens her if she does not hand over the military maps that they want.

She flees and the stalker chases her. She finds herself on top of the Sphinx with a spitting cobra, only to be saved by Leopold, a young man who has befriended her.

But he is suddenly gunned down. But whom? And who is Leopold? Dora had better find out or she could soon be dead, too, in Egyptian Spy, a new thriller by Dora Benley.

Look For The New Cheops Books LLC Brochure:

Look for the new Cheops Books LLC brochure for the autumn. It will feature four titles coming out this season: Old Faithful Affair, Armistice Plot, Paris Peace Plot, and Egyptian Spy. If you are a librarian and you attended the ALA in late June in New Orleans and stopped by the IBPA booth, you may well receive a brochure in the mail soon. Otherwise you will have to ask us to send you one using the Contact Us Feature of 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, in Old Faithful Affair. 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.

Old Faithful Affair is an Edward Ware Thrillers Alternative History book.

Edward Ware Thrillers Newsletter May, 2018:

Armistice Plot will appear at the ALA Convention in New Orleans at the IBPA Cooperative Booth. After that it will be published on October 1, the day that Lawrence and Edward drove into Damascus to end the Great War on that front.

Lieutenant Edward Ware fights the Kaiser and Adolf Hitler in a century gone insane.
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.

Hitler’s Chief Spy is to be published this Friday, May 18. We are going to hold a party on our website: http://www.edwardwarethrillers.org in a chat room.

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.

Old Faithful Plot will be published on June 16.

This summer has been an unprecedented season of marketing here at Cheops Books LLC. We have had our books all over the place. Last month Hitler’s Agent, soon to be published on October 15, went to the American Library Association Convention in Chicago. It was displayed at the IBPA Cooperative Booth. Just this past week in July Cheops Books LLC sent an eblast to K-12 librarians to announce the publication of Dark 3: Special Edition to be published on September 15. Next month Cheops Books is to be part of a cooperative catalog to be sent out to independent bookstores advertising Dark 3: Special Edition.

In October we will be sending booth Hitler’s Agent and Dark 3: Special Edition to the Frankfurt Book Fair in Germany. The titles to be published this autumn will be at the IBPA booth.

In addition we have just had an audio book recorded for Salisbury Plot. We used an exciting new voice never to be repeated again but special only for this one Edward Ware Thrillers at War novel. This edition will soon appear on audible.

For Dark 3: Special Edition we have been working with an artist in Ukraine named Andrew. He has illustrated the book for us with his black and white sketches and drawings of the characters.

Work also continues on the German translation of Captive at the Berghof: Part 1.
