The villainess, Helga von Wessel, Hitler’s chief spy, struts boldly across the cover of this book with Europe at her back and all sorts of ambitious notions in her head. As far as she is concerned it isn’t Hitler’s Reich. It is Helga’s Reich. She will wrap Edward around her little finger to prove it.
Dora isn’t sure she is cut out for this life of intrigue against Hitler and his chiefest spy, Helga von Wessel, who turns out to be Edward’s mistress and the mother of his bastard son, Leopold. After all, as the only daughter of a Robber Baron from Pittsburgh, she is used to having things her own way. The conflict heats up between Dora and her husband, Colonel Sir Edward Ware, and they are headed for a splashy divorce that makes headlines around the world just at the moment when the globe is poised on the brink of war. Hitler’s Agent is coming soon from Cheops Books, LLC.

The German translation of Chapter 4 of Captive at the Berghof: Part 1 has been posted today on the appropriate section of the Cheops Books website. It is the next installment in a chapter by chapter publication of the work in the style of such nineteenth century novelists as Charles Dickens. By the end of 2016 we have translated almost half of the historical thriller about the lead up to World War 2 into German. Hitler threatens Colonel Sir Edward Ware and Dora, Lady Ware, that if they don’t hand over the Lawrence maps, key to world domination, he will kidnap their daughter. When we finish translating all the chapters the suspense novel will be published in German in a separate edition of the work. It will be the first book in a foreign language printed by Cheops Books, LLC. We will feature it on the amazon.de website with a lead in on the author’s page in German.

Would Be Christmas Bride: Miss Dora Benley got engaged to Lieutenant Edward Ware in May of 1915 when Edward was about to ship off to Gallipoli. She returned to Pittsburgh with her Crusader engagement ring that Edward gave her in England, an heirloom passed down in his family for generations, with the understanding that they would be seeing each other again at Christmas time. The war was supposed to be over. Peace was going to reign, and they were to be married at Salisbury Cathedral. Dora’s mother even bought the ocean liner discounts for all the guests to travel with them in an entourage back to England. But when Christmas came Edward was still far away fighting. He never returned for their wedding. Dora waited Christmas after lonely Christmas for her true love to return to her. She waited four long years for the Great War to end.

This story is recounted in the first volume of the Edward Ware Thrillers at War series, Key to Lawrence: Special Edition.

William Shakespeare is not only the most famous English writer of all times, he is frequently considered to be the greatest writer who ever existed in the whole world. But did he really exist? Was his name really William Shakespeare? Or was Shakespeare merely a pen name to conceal his real identity? There was a William Shakespeare who was a businessman at the time, who bought New Place at Stratford upon Avon. But was he a patron of the artists or a writer? Did the real writer just borrow his name? And why did he want to conceal himself? In the past people have suggested that he might have been close to the royal court and thus wanted not to be known for political reasons. But whoever he was the mystery he leaves behind is intriguing and has become the subject of the upcoming Edward Ware Thrillers novel, Murder at Hamlet’s Castle.

Reaction to University of Pennsylvania Removal of Shakespeare Portrait: Supposedly the students at the University of Pennsylvania removed Shakespeare’s portrait from the hallway of the Fisher-Bennett Hall in the name of diversity and replaced it with a photo of a black gay poet, Audre Lorde. If I were running the department, I would remove the students first. They don’t seem to be worthy to graduate from a one-time prestigious institution.

What is wrong with what they did? First of all, Shakespeare is a well-established writer to say the least. “Modern and diverse” is not important. What is important is what has survived the test of the ages, or rather history. If you want to celebrate a black poet, put up a portrait or a bust of Pushkin, the very famous Russian writer. If you want a Lesbian poet, take the most famous of all —- Sappho from ancient Greece. They have survived the test of time. Audre Lorde has not.
This emphasis nowadays on what is contemporary is anti-intellectual and anti-scholarly, and that is what universities are supposed to be about.

Cheops Books LLC will publish an upcoming novel about Shakespeare, Murder in Hamlet’s Castle.

Why Did the Yarrowdale Men Not Mutiny?`The prize crew of Germans was only eighteen men. The prize crew was selected from among the crew of the Moewe and their commander from the German navy was Lieutenant Badewitz. There were over 460 captured seamen from various British steamers and Noreweigian ships. You had a mix of French, American, British, and Norweigian and other nationalities aboard the Yarrowdale being taken back to Germany.
So how did 18 men control 460 seamen? They placed explosive charges in the engine room, on the bridge, and other places on the ship. They warned the seamen that they would blow up the ship if they mutinied. The ploy worked.

Lieutenant Badewitz was a Captain Bligh like character. Everyone aboard the ship feared him. He was lionized in Germany for bringing the ship full of prisoners back to port. The picture the author, Gary Cargill, displays here is a postcard that was sent around for publicity purposes. It helped to raise morale.

In another Cheops Books LLC publication, Key to Lawrence Special Edition, Dora had to deal with a similar situation aboard the Lusitania. The Arab saboteur threatened to blow up the ship if she did not hand over the Lawrence maps.
