Chapter 7 of Captive at the Berghof: Part 1:
Chapter 7 of Captive at the Berghof: Part 1 is now on the Cheops Books LLC website: http://www.edwardwarethrillers.org in German translation. It is part 7 in the installment series we are making available for readers before the book itself is published in German.
The proofs for the German translation are making their way to the Frankfurt Book Fair in Frankfurt, Germany this October as part of the IBPA exhibition.
Hitler has found out about Colonel Sir Edward Ware’s secret undercover activities for Winston Churchill, and he’s playing hardball. He kidnaps Thomasina, Edward’s daughter, and won’t give the child back unless Edward and his wife, Dora, hand over the key to world domination – the Lawrence maps. They’d better do something fast before Thomasina truly becomes Hitler’s daughter.
Captive at the Berghof: Part 1 is followed by Captive at the Berghof: Part 2.

Hitler’s Agent Visits Paris, France:
In the wake of Trump’s visit to Paris for Bastille Day we have been discussing France. I have used France occasionally as a setting for my novels. I did use the French part of Belgium, Wallonia, as the setting for Inn at the Crossroads, my novel about Napoleon. But France itself has managed to wedge its way in there once in a blue moon. For instance Dora and Edward meet Churchill at the Ritz Hotel for a long luncheon right after they escape Hitler’s clutches in the novel Hitler’s Agent, which I am about to publish on October 15. They have just escaped Mussolini in Venice and sailed through the Mediterranean out past the Rock of Gibraltar to Paris going in that direction. Dora has Thomasina with her and is surrounded by guards that she has hired for the occasion to protect her from the Nazis. Helga, who is Hitler’s Agent, and Herr von Wessel make an entrance into the dining room. They send Dora notes about the Lawrence maps, key to world domination, with the cooperation of the waiters. Helga is seated by a statue of Venus. But Dora puts an end to that, too. It is one of the few occasions where Helga is in the same room with Churchill. The two don’t mix well as characters, mind you. But at least on that occasion Dora and Edward managed to escape back to Ware Hall in the south of England for more adventures. For the historical thriller, Hitler’s Agent, does not end there.

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.

Old Faithful Plot Book Trailer Links To Pompeii:
The eruption of Vesuvius on August 24, 79AD was one of the most famous natural disasters of all time. It buried ancient Pompeii and Herculaneum under clouds of ash and mud flows from the still active volcano in southern Italy south of Rome along the Bay of Naples. It was so famous that even Adolf Hitler got the idea that he wanted to create a modern day Pompeii in America of all places. He picked not only a volcano but a super volcano with the power to destroy not only a town but half a continent. He wanted to get America out of his way permanently so that they could not interfere in any future war. Read about how he did this in the upcoming Edward Ware Thrillers at War novel Old Faithful Plot. Pictures of the Pompeii eruption will be featured in the book trailer soon to be posted on the website: http://www.edwardwarethrillers.org.

Bubbling Mud Pots And More —- Book Trailer for Old Faithful Plot:
Have you ever seen a mud puddle boil? Yes, that’s right, boil and bubble and make a plopping noise? If you say no and think we are insane to ask, you have obviously never visited Yellowstone National Park. Dora Benley, at this point Mrs. Byrne, has never been to Yellowstone either. She is astounded to peer out the window of their car and see boiling mud. When she reaches for her map she finds out that this sort of thing is common in the volcanic caldera that is Yellowstone National Park.
Cheops Books LLC could not resist including a segment with boiling mud pots in the book trailer for this upcoming Edward Ware Thrillers at War novel, Old Faithful Plot. You will be able to hear real Yellowstone mud pots bubble and burst in a perverse, even spooky sort of way. But what else would you expect when the volcanic part of Yellowstone is central to the plot of this thriller novel? You are supposed to think how Yellowstone is a giant volcano that is not extinct and could explode with devastating consequences at any time. That is certainly what Adolf Hitler is thinking throughout the book. And you, the reader, will find out why.

Winston Churchill Makes Debut In Book Trailer for Hitler’s Agent:
Since so much of the subject matter of the Edward Ware Thrillers at War novels has to do with World War 1 and World War 2, we decided to give Winston Churchill a speaking part in the most recent book trailer. Cheops Books LLC has just posted the book trailer for Hitler’s Agent by Dora Benley, book five of the Edward Ware Thrillers at War Series, on the website at http://www.edwardwarethrillers.org. The battle between the great orator and MP, Winston Churchill, and Adolf Hitler, Fuhrer and Chancellor of the Third Reich, formed the chief political conflict of twentieth century history. So we let Churchill speak for himself and call Hitler what names he will such as a “monster of iniquity”. It all fits into the drama with Hitler and his chief spy, Helga von Wessel, committing all sorts of atrocities and making life very difficult for Colonel Sir Edward Ware and his wife, Dora, Lady Ware. Nor will Hitler and Helga von Wessel stop until the Wares hand over the Lawrence maps, key to world domination. We will see what Winston Churchill has to say about that.

Dora And Edward Should Book A Mediterranean Cruise in 2018:
One year from today on Friday, June 8, 2018 the Queen Victoria sets out on a 14-night Mediterranean cruise that should interest Dora and Edward Ware with all their connections all over Europe. What is better the cruise embarks in Southampton and returns them to Southampton at the end of the cruise so they can easily drive right back to Ware Hall in the south of England or they can drive into London and take up residence at the Savoy at their apartment. The following ports of call are on the itinerary of Mediterranean Highlights: Oporto, Barcelona, Port Mahon, Ajaccio, Citavecchia, Cagliari, and Gibraltar.
Ajaccio should interest them. That is the place on the island of Corsica where Napoleon was born. There is a statue of the Emperor there as well as a house that was in the Bonaparte family until the 1920s. Edward’s great-grandfather served under Wellington at the Battle of Waterloo in the upcoming Cheops Books LLC historical thriller, Inn at the Crossroads.
Citavecchia is the port of Rome. Edward has a big chase scene through all sorts of Italian formal gardens in the historical thriller, Map Plot. He could take a shore excursion to Hadrian’s Villa or the Villa de Este with all its waterfalls.
And finally Gibraltar would always be of interest. In the historical thriller soon to be published by Cheops Books LLC, Hitler’s Agent, Dora and Edward pay a visit to the island of Gibraltar to refuel their yacht. They need to get back to Paris to meet with Winston Churchill at the Ritz Hotel. Dora enlists some local apes to help escape from Hitler and his agents.

Key to Lawrence: Special Edition Will Appear As Audiobook On Website:
Miss Dora Benley survives the sinking of the Lusitania in 1915 to plot her revenge against the Germans with a little unexpected help from Lawrence of Arabia. Key to Lawrence Special Edition is volume one of the Edward Ware Thrillers At War Series. It will soon appear on the Cheops Books LLC website, edwardwarethrillers.org, as an audiobook narrated by one of the authors.
Water rushed into the four, great smoke stacks of the ship as they, too, hit the waves. Tremendous, churning whirlpools sucked victims inside. A few were ejected, blackened with soot. Propellers rose above the maelstrom. The rudder lifted higher than the smoke stacks. The ship’s prow pointed down toward the deep. It looked as if the ship’s nose would hit the sea bed hundreds of feet below. The Lusitania sank in only 18 minutes after being torpedoed on May 7, 1915. Dora Benley vowed revenge on the enemy. Key to Lawrence tracks the beginning of her quest for justice in this special edition of the first volume of the Edward Ware Thrillers At War Series. It commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Great War.
Key to Lawrence is brought to you by Edward Ware Thrillers At War, an imprint of Cheops Books, LLC. If you liked the first volume of the series you might want to try book two, Salisbury Plot, also available on Kindle. The series progresses to the 1930’s with more ominous political developments, particularly the coming to power of Adolf Hitler. Dora Benley, now Lady Ware, meets her foe, Hitler’s chiefest spy.
