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.

New Cover For Unlocking Trinity: The Sketch:

Daniel Teran has produced a sketch for the exciting new cover for Unlocking Trinity, a concluding novel of the Edward Ware Thrillers at War Series. Helga von Wessel, the femme fatale and villainess of the series, is riding an atomic bomb to her doom —- or at least so Edward Ware hopes.

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.

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.

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.

Edward Ware Thrillers Newsletter June, 2018:

Cheops Books LLC has just published Old Faithful Plot, book seven of the Edward Ware Thrillers at War Series.

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 in Old Faithful Plot.

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.

Old Faithful Plot is book seven of the Edward Ware Thrillers at War Series. Other books in the series include Paris Peace Plot, Salisbury Affair, Captive at the Berghof: Parts 1 and 2, Dark Horse, and Hitler’s Chief Spy.

Armistice Plot will be published on October 1.

Cheops Books LLC will publish Paris Peace Plot on November 11. 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.

Venice In Dora Benley Novels:

Dora Benley visits Venice in two very different novels. There is the supernatural young adult novel Back To Venice and the historical thriller in the Edward Ware Thrillers at War Series called Armistice Plot about World War 1 and Hitler’s rise to power.

In Back to Venice eighteen year old Alexandra Banks yawns and stretches as she asks her chauffeur where they are. Charles says the Coronado Bay Resort in San Diego. Alexandra thinks it looks like Venice with all the canals, gondolas, and gondoliers in Italian Renaissance and medieval costumes. They were there just last week with her high roller parents. Charles tells her it is California make believe like Disneyland. He points out at sign that advertises gondola rides on the Coronado Cays. But Alexandra isn’t sure when the costumed gondoliers begin to stare at her.

She knows something very strange is going on when she takes a ride in a gondola and steps out into what is obviously Venice. But it is not the Venice of today but of hundreds of years ago. Passers by gawk at her. They are suspicious of her twenty-first century clothes and her cell phone. She is quickly arrested and put on trial for her life as a witch. How did Alexandra get into such a fix to begin with? What is going on? How does she escape? She had better figure it out soon or she may never emerge from the nightmarish Middle Ages and get back to her real life again.

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.

Novels From The Point Of View Of Edward:

Many of the Edward Ware Thrillers at War Novels are from the point of view of Dora. If you read Paris Peace Plot, Salisbury Affair, or Captive at the Berghof you will see what I mean. But others are from the point of view of Edward Ware himself such as Hitler’s Chief Spy, Armistice Plot, and Unlocking Trinity.

In Hitler’s Chief Spy 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.
