Edward Ware Thrillers Newsletter September, 2018:

During the past month Cheops Books LLC has promoted a number of young adult titles by Dora Benley. We concentrated on her Egyptian series, Doom of Egypt, Curse of the Pharaoh, Curse of Egypt, Demon From Egypt. Most recently we have been promoting King Richard 1: A Novel.

On October 1 we will publish Armistice Plot on Amazon Kindle and on Smashwords. The paperback edition will be available on the Cheops Books website: http://www.edwardwarethrillers.org. You can sign up to win 1 of 100 free copies of the book on Goodreads.

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.

 Paris Peace Plot will be published on Armistice Day November 11, one hundred years after the end of the Great War. We have a definite World War 1 theme this autumn. You can sign up to win 1 of 100 free copies on Goodreads. The paperback edition will be available only on the website.

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.

Unlocking Trinity: New Cover Ready

Daniel Teran has just finished the book cover for Unlocking Trinity by Dora Benley. Cheops Books LLC wants to share it with you here.

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.

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.”

Cheops Books LLC has just received a new review for Hitler’s Chief Spy on Amazon. Eric Ridenour left the following statement:

Talk about a captivating read! Right out the gate, Hitler’s Chief Spy gets into the action with a woman attempting to leave the country over a spy love affair, which immediately turns into a kidnapping! So many books you have to get 100 pages in before getting to the action, not so with this one. In fact, this novel is so action-packed, it is almost overwhelming with the volume of information to take in in the first 10% of the book. At first, I was a bit annoyed and confused, as a speed reader, I can take in a book in an afternoon if I choose, not so with this one. Like a hot cup of coffee, Dora Benley makes you slowly sip the information until it cools down. By the time things cool down, you are deep into the story and can’t put it down. Think the classy tuxedo spy of James Bond, but in World War 2 Germany, with a mix of Indiana Jones-style adventure with tales of lies, kidnapping and deceit, forged maps and a race to the final point. Very historically accurate, I was genuinely impressed, it is hard to put down.

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.
