Salisbury Plot Is Getting A New Cover:

How about a touch of the Gothic? Time to visit Salisbury Plot which is about to be published in a brand new edition with a brand new cover recently drawn by cover artist Daniel Teran. It will be published next year along with a new edition of Key to Lawrence. We have a whole new line up to be announced before the end of the year.

Who is the saboteur following Dora about on the doomed Morro Castle in September of 1934? Who is the terrorist who set fire to the first class writing room on the ocean liner? Who followed Dora and her new husband, Colonel Sir Edward Ware, to Salisbury Cathedral on their wedding day? A creature in a black robe is wielding a sword in the balcony and clanging the bell. The freak seems to summon the legions of the dead who surround them in the hills peppered with bronze age burial mounds, who seem to rise from the cloisters in the center of the cathedral where unknown dead from the Middle Ages still reside. Why does she see her new husband handing money over to the saboteur on her wedding day in a hidden garden of Ware Hall? What does it mean to be married to Colonel Sir Edward Ware? When she finds out the truth it will change Dora’s life forever.

Salisbury Plot is book two of the Edward Ware Thriller Series. The first book is Key to Lawrence: Special Edition, which starts at World War 1 with the sinking of the Lusitania. Book three is Captive at the Berghof 1 and 2 concerning Hitler and World War 2 and their interaction with the British.

Edward Ware Thrillers Newsletter April, 2017:

Cheops Books LLC will be publishing the second volume of the Edward Ware Thrillers at War Series, the Salisbury Plot, on May 1. Everyone is invited to the launch party on the Cheops Books Facebook Page at 2PM Pacific Time on Monday, May 1. Be entertained by a debate between Winston Churchill and a reporter who is accusing him of being responsible for the arson aboard the Morro Castle in September of 1934. The reporter’s contention is that the map plot that the MP is engaged in was the cause of the fire just as Winston’s slowness in sending ships to rescue the Lusitania on May 7, 1915 was the cause of over 1000 deaths on that day during the Great War. Winston must defend himself as best he can. For indeed he is involved in the plot to hide the Lawrence maps, key to world domination, first from the Kaiser and next from Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. The scene where the Morro Castle catches fire is the opening sequence of the Salisbury Plot.

During the debate you can enter the contest to describe your own worst travel disaster. If you win you will receive a $25.00 Amazon gift certificate to boost your summer vacation reading. Enter other upcoming contests, too, which will be posted in the next several days.

Cheops Books LLC has also just published a new young adult thriller by Dora Benley, Mary’s Gone. Creepy St. Simons Island is the setting with the live oaks with drooping moss and big roots that jut up out of the ground and look three hundred years old. Mosquitoes the size of your fist buzz near your leg and vampire-like drive you back into your car. Alligators with yellow eyes spy you from the nearest swamp, and this is the land of swamps. You won’t be able to find your way around the black water with reeds growing out of it any time soon.

Judy has the creeps. Nothing like this brutal stabbing and strangling has ever happened on St. Simons, a peaceful island off the coast of southeast Georgia. She’s seen such things only on TV. But here it is, staring straight back at her from her iPad!

There’s been an attack on a teenage girl her own age at Dunbar Creek, near Ebo Landing in the swamps. It’s a site often visited by ghost tours because of its ghoulish history. Legend has it that a girl from plantation days often appears with a lantern in hand searching for her lost love.

Whether there’s a ghost or not, Judy has no idea. All she knows is that she’d better figure out what’s really going on. The voice that calls her on her cell phone, the one claiming to be the girl from long ago named Margaret the Wanderer, promises that Judy will be her very next victim.

Mary’s Gone is a young adult thriller published by Edward Ware Thrillers YA, an imprint of Cheops Books, LLC. Stories out of the past. It is one of several novels set on St Simons Island. If you enjoyed this book, you might also like Dark 3 also by Dora Benley.

Look forward to other titles in the upcoming months.

Salisbury Plot And The Gothic Tradition
Cheops Books LLC is following the Gothic Tradition in publishing Salisbury Plot, the latest in the series of Edward Ware Thrillers at War. The setting opens on a doomed ship at sea that is about to burn. There are secret arsonists aboard the Morro Castle. They are carrying out secret, unnamed missions for unknown instigators. That all fits with novels from the past such as Jane Eyre who gets employed as a governess for a mysterious man with all sorts of problems whom she knows nothing about.
Dora proceeds to England to marry her lover who seems to be involved in an intrigue with the very arsonist who burned down the ship on which she was sailing. She cannot imagine why anymore than Jane Eyre can imagine why her master is keeping a madwoman in the attic who sneaks down one night and attacks her in her bed.
Dora marries Edward in Salisbury Cathedral while a freak shrieks from the balcony and terrifies the guests just as Jane appears at an altar with Mr. Rochester only to be stopped by mysterious vistors who object to her marriage on the grounds that Mr. Rochester is already married to their sister.
These are the conventions of Gothic novels since the late eighteenth century. They lend a certain atmosphere to the novel that is hard to miss. Read Salisbury Plot to be published on Amazon Kindle on May 1.

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.
