Bianca mourns for her old friend Doc who helped her overcome her fear of the dark after being the only witness to a brutal murder on St. Simons Island. He was driven out of town two years ago when the locals concluded that he must be the killer. She last saw him parachuting from a plane escaping from the law, a fall he couldn’t have survived. She’s moved to California with her employers, the Shipleys, and taken on a permanent babysitting position with Little Katie. Suddenly there’s a kidnapping attempt on the rich little heiress that Bianca is employed to protect. To the rescue comes a tall, dark young man who reminds her of somebody she’s lost. But it just couldn’t be . . . After all, he’s dead. And after all . . . he’s supposed to be the bad guy.

The British Museum In Edward Ware Thrillers:
The British Museum figures in the Edward Ware Thrillers at War Series on more than one occasion. It appears as a mysterious place, full of atmosphere and intrigue, and not as a very prim and proper and boring British institution where school kids visit on field trips. The series begins in 1914 when archaeologist Leonard Woolley is conducting a Hittite dig at Carchemish in Turkey. His assistant is a young man by the name of T.E. Lawrence. Edward Ware’s father, Sir Adolphus Ware, is an amateur archaeologist/car magnate and is helping to fund the dig. Edward first becomes enmeshed by the wiles of the spy who was later to become Helga von Wessel during this dig in 1914. She is searching for the Lawrence maps for the Kaiser.
Leonard Woolley helps Edward hide the Lawrence maps in the British Museum near the Rosetta Stone in the historical thriller Map Plot. Later still Dora and Edward return to the famed museum in the thriller Wall Street Swastika. The silent mummies and Greek statues watch them as they slink through the museum at night undetected by human eyes. It is all what helps to make the British Museum part of the Edward Ware Thriller Series.

Wilson to Trump: 100 Years War:
Is The End Of Terrorism Near?
In the Edward Ware Thriller Series Dora and Edward are always reflecting that Hitler is everywhere and they can’t escape him — a kind of terrorism. And if it’s not Hitler it is Hitler’s spies or earlier the Kaiser’s spies looking for the fabled Lawrence maps, key to world domination. Dora finds a saboteur in her shed in Pittsburgh in the South Hills. She ends up having to shoot him herself. At other times saboteurs interrupt them on the beach outside New York City, Coney Island. At another time the spies find them in a cabin in the woods outside Santa Fe, New Mexico. They follow them to Yellowstone. They steal items from their house in England at Ware Hall. There is nowhere Dora and Edward can go in the world to be safe.
Oddly enough it feels like that right now for real in the US and the world in general. Terrorists nowadays might not be after the Lawrence maps. But they seem to be after YOU and everybody else just to make a political point or whatever. Starting two years ago they focused on scaring everybody in Europe. It all seemed to have to do with the migrant crisis. More refugees were on the move than at any time since World War 2. But because Europe, particularly Germany, opened its doors to them Europe now seems to be vulnerable to terrorists in a big way. The Mediterranean in particular seems to be a hotbed of unrest. If you can say that the migrant crisis helped to lead to Brexit, then it helps to explain by there was just recently a confrontation at Gibraltar between England and Spain, the entrance to the Mediterranean. Apparently migrants have used the Mediterranean to cross in boats. The French Riviera town of Nice was shot up in a big way. And now we have Trump launching missiles from a ship in the Mediterranean, making it a war zone, not just a zone of terrorism.
Even if Trump’s missile strike helps to deter the use of chemical and biological weapons by big states, it does not do much to deter terrorism. In the days before the strike there was a terrorist attack in London on Westminster Bridge. The day AFTER the missile strike, another terrorist struck in Stockholm of all places. What is a terrorist doing in Stockholm in Scandanavia? You would think it would be the last place they would go. Are they going to appear in Oslo or Copenhagen next? Is there no place safe? The top of Mt. Everest? The North Pole?
Hopefully the terrorist situation will be resolved somehow during the next few years. I view it as the last stage of the Great War which has turned out to be a 100 years war indeed. All the liberation movements and revolutions that it unleashed have to become history someday. That some day should be soon. But somebody like Trump will have to take the lead. His opening volley is good. He made a big splash with his missile strike. But the big question is what will he do next?

Key to 1935: The Salisbury Plot
Mrs. Michael Byrne, the former Dora Benley, is returning from Cuba on the Morro Castle when she encounters a young man she has never seen before in the dining room. He demands that she hand over the Lawrence maps, key to world domination. He obviously works for the Nazis. She pretends to know nothing about it, though she will have to tell her lover, Colonel Sir Edward Ware, who is up to his military boots in intrigue over the maps. He is a spy for Winston Churchill, the backbencher, and this young man whoever he is, seems to know it.
She escapes from the dining room. Things escalate later that evening. She catches the mystery man setting fire to the ladies writing room. The whole ship soon catches fire, and she finds herself a widow. She quickly escapes to England to join Edward Ware.
But weeks later during her wedding ceremony at Salisbury Cathedral in the south of England the mystery and intrigue deepen even more. Up on the balcony a stranger appears chanting, screaming, and howling at the guests below assembled at the church, threatening them. Edward shoots at the unknown rogue, but to no avail.
What on earth is going on? How many people does Hitler have working for him? Has he summoned the medieval ghosts of the cathedral, too, the spooks and demons from ages past? As Dora races out of the church she feels a chill so deep it must be centuries old.
On May 1, 2017 Cheops Books LLC will publish Key to 1935: The Salisbury Plot. The Kindle edition on Amazon will sell for $8.95. The paperback ediiton on lulu.com will sell for $12.95. There will be a Goodreads giveaway starting soon. You will be able to enter the contest to win one of seventeen copies to be distributed on May 1.

Edward’s parents, Sir Adolphus Ware and Annabelle Ware, run a British automobile company, Adolphus Motors, from his estate in the south of England, Ware Hall. Edward’s father is so successful that he is knighted and made a sir, a title which Edward can inherit. His hobby is archaeology. He helps to fund an expedition in Carchemish in Turkey in 1913-1914 under the supervision of archaeologist Leonard Woolley. He meets T. E. Lawrence, who has begun a project of drawing military maps as the Great War begins. The little camp in the desert is attacked by German spies sent by the Kaiser. T. E. Lawrence, Leonard Woolley, Sir Adolphus Ware, and Edward must flee back to England. Thus begins the battle of the Lawrence maps, which the Germans will ultimately consider the key to world domination.
