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.

Edward Ware’s Intrigue In Venice:

One of Edward Ware’s more memorable intrigues occurs in Venice in 1921. Hitler is on the rise in Germany. Edward and Churchill must stop him. They must track the support that Herr von Wessel provides for the fledgling Nazi leader. Part of that effort is tracking his correspondence and his letters to Hitler. Edward is going after letters that reveal Hitler’s future plans in Germany.

Here is a quote from the Venetian section of Armistice Plot to let you absorb the atmosphere:

In the distance Edward thought he could make out the Bridge of Sighs across the Grand Canal. He knew that the Palazzo Mocenigo should be positioned close to that. Just as he was nearing a hotel right next to the main canal area, two blond men speaking German emerged from the lobby through double glass doors.

Edward made a dash to duck into the darkest street he could find. Then it all ended. A huge expanse of pavement filled with thousands of pigeons unexpectedly opened up in front of him. He felt exposed and naked with nowhere to hide.

The sun came out from behind the clouds and illuminated the broad expanse of St. Mark’s Square spreading out before him in all its Byzantine splendor. A cathedral seemingly made of solid gold glittered in the sun like another lure to distract his attention.

“Ja, Ja! Da ist er! He’s right there!” came a German voice not far behind him.

Silver flashed.
