Soon To Be Available For Pre-Order On Amazon: Armistice Plot:

Armistice Plot will be published by Cheops Books LLC on October 1, 2018, one hundred years after Lawrence took Damascus at the end of the Great War. That led to the Armistice.

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.

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.

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.

Murder at the Sphinx Gets New Reader Review:

We have a brand new review for Dora Benley’s Murder at the Sphinx on amazon.com by Cheri Clay:

She put her hand to her belly and imagined she felt Edward’s baby move. She waited far too long already. Lawrence maps or no, intrigue or no, she was going to take the plunge.”

Edward and Dora have waited since the great war to be together. Nineteen long years later, and after the death of Dora’s husband, they are now to be married. However, their wedding day was not as planned as “H, the faceless ghoul in blue”, shouts “da gozee” at them from the gallery as It cuts a British uniform to shreds and dropping it to the floor below…

What a spellbinding tale of intrigue, murder, suspense and yes even romance! The story of Edward and Dora’s love affair is powerfully emotional, but add the twist of intrigue and suspense surrounding the Lawrence maps and you have a novel that grabs hold and won’t let go.

There is more to this story, as hiding in the shadows are secrets and lies just waiting to be revealed. What happened to Edward the years he was missing and thought dead? Who is Leopold, the young man who seems to be on a quest to kill Dora, only to save her life time and time again, as Edward grows more impatient with the young boy wanting nothing more than to do away with him?

Heart-stopping suspense that readers will not want to end. Exceptionally written, memorable characters and a story line, not to be forgotten, leaving one powerfully charged novel that readers of suspense will not want to miss.

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.

Edward Goes To Venice:

In Armistice Plot long after the Great War was over, Edward was sent by Churchill to Venice. Why? Venice was headquarters for the von Wessels, Hitler’s chief spies. Herr von Wessel, Hitler’s financier, operated his trading empire from there. Edward was to find certain letters sent from Hitler to Herr von Wessel informing him what he was planning to do next to rise to power in Germany during the early 1920’s.

Edward runs into all sorts of adventures and misadventures along the way. He even takes a ride on the Orient Express. But in the end he makes it back to Winston.

Thrillers Set In Exotic Locales:

Edward Ware Thrillers at War novels are frequently set in exotic locales where the setting plays a big role in the plot of the novel. This applies to both historical settings and contemporary settings. For example we have Old Faithful Plot by Dora Benley set in Yellowstone National Park, home of one of earth’s super volcanoes. We also have Armistice Plot which was set all over the globe as hero Edward Ware globe trots. But important to the title is the setting in Damascus at the end of the Great War, or First World War. This is all very typical of Edward Ware Thrillers.

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.

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. 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.

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.

In Unlocking Trinity 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.

Two More Historical Thrillers By Dora Benley:

Dora Benley has whipped up two more historical thrillers to order. Cheops Books LLC will soon be publishing them. Paris Peace Plot will be published on November 11, the one hundred year anniversary of the end of World War 1. Helga’s Reich will be published soon after that.

In Helga’s Reich Helga von Wessel, Hitler’s chiefest spy, has killed Edward’s mother in a bombing raid in 1940. She has almost murdered his wife and destroyed his marriage. She has helped Hitler kidnap his only daughter, Thomasina.

Now she stands in the way of Edward and Britain winning the war. Does Edward have what it takes to kill her off before this vamp who is the mother of his illegitimate son, Leopold, ruins his career and takes the Lawrence maps which he is sworn to protect?

The battle between Edward and Helga plays itself out against the backdrop of World War 2.

In Paris Peace Plot 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.
