New Book Trailer for Old Faithful Plot:

Old Faithful Plot, an Edward Ware Thrillers at War novel, has a new book trailer on the Cheops Books LLC website: http://www.edwardwarethrillers.org. Go to the home page, click on Old Faithful Plot, and the book trailer will be staring you in the face with Helga von Wessel, the villainess, simpering at you. Click on the video and enjoy the preview of coming attractions once the novel is published.
The book trailer evokes the feeling of fear and catastrophe that was so emblematic of that year, 1933, when Hitler came to power, FDR made his inaugural speech about the only thing we have to fear is fear itself, and the movie King Kong was raging through the movie theaters. Here a world catastrophe is evoked which we have tried to capture in the music and photos featured in the trailer.
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. 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.

Tune Into The Old Faithful Webcam on the Old Faithful Plot Website:
When you are visiting the Cheops Books LLC website at http://www.edwardwarethrillers.org, you can tune into the Old Faithful webcam on the nps.gov website. Thinking it very appropriate we have included this webcam on the book page for the Old Faithful Plot. Given that the eruptions of this particular geyser are very important to the plot of the historical thriller novel that is part of the series Edward Ware Thrillers at War, we wanted readers to be able to watch the geyser while they were reading sections of the book or looking at other pages on the website.

Remember that 1933 is the year of FDR, Hitler, King Kong, and the Old Faithful Plot. And just to appreciate it all the more, watch the geyser erupt on the webcam.

Murder at Stone Tree House:
Dora and Edward must make their way down Route 66. They get the message in Chicago when they are fleeing from a movie theater with King Kong chasing them. Route 66 begins in Chicago as a gateway to the west. They set off right away to meet Churchill’s messenger so they can hand over the Lawrence maps which are like hot potatoes. They can’t get rid of them fast enough before someone tries to murder them. As the German agents sent by Hitler know — they are the key to world domination in the 1930’s.
Dora and Edward drive through Illinois and Missouri, Oklahoma, too. They can’t get to New Mexico fast enough and finally zoom across the border to Arizona. They are to meet Churchill’s agent at the Stone Tree House in the northern part of Petrified Forest National Monument just outside Holbrook, Arizona. Surrounded by the Painted Desert the building made of petrified stone millions of years old sits waiting for Dora and Edward with its doors open. But no one is there. No one answers when they call out. Suddenly a man falls out of his seat onto the floor dead. The German agents got him! What shall they do next?
Find out what happened at Stone Tree House. Read Old Faithful Plot, the next in the Edward Ware Thrillers at War Series. It will soon be published by Cheops Books LLC later this year.

1933, the year of the Old Faithful Plot, the alternative history thriller soon to be published by Cheops Books, LLC, was the year of three great rhetoricians in politics: FDR, Adolf Hitler, and Winston Churchill. In 1933 Adolf Hitler became Chancellor of Germany. Hitler was always good at making speeches and working the crowd. He was positively theatrical, acting as if he were on a stage with his rhetorical flourishes and dramatic moves. FDR had just become the American President and was inaugurated in March with his famous “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself” speech. It was probably the most dramatic and noteworthy inaugural address of all times on this day, January 20, of the Trump inaugural. Lurking in the background in 1933 was the famous British speechmaker, Winston Churchill, who was still a backbencher, excluded from the Conservative Government of his day but soon to come to the fore in politics. He was the become the biggest and most famous of rhetoricians of the twentieth century. It was such an era of rhetoric that even the movie producer character in King Kong, which came out in 1933, made thematic speeches in the movie. He delivered the last lines of the movie about beauty and the beast.

Fay Wray was the female lead in the 1933 movie King Kong. She was the lady that the monster ape took a liking to when he first set eyes on her on the island where he was king. She was famous as a great screamer whenever she saw the monster’s ugly face.

So what do Fay Wray and King Kong have to do with Dora Benley, the heroine of the Old Faithful Plot, the alternative history thriller to be published later this year by Cheops Books LLC? Well, the movie King Kong was released to the public in 1933, the troubled year of dictators when Hitler came to power and FDR made his famous nothing to fear but fear itself speech. And 1933 was the year when the novel Old Faithful Plot takes place.
Hitler and King Kong are both symbols of that year 1933. Dora and Edward run into both and have to deal with them. Dora had better practice screaming until she sounds like Fay Wray. She is going to have to do a lot of it in the thriller novel. What part does King Kong play? When does the heroine of the novel meet him? You will have to read it to find out.
