Old Faithful Plot And Pliny: A Thriller:

Pliny the Elder plays a strange role in Old Faithful Plot. Though he lived 2000 years earlier in time, the famous Roman naturalist and encyclopedia writer becomes inextricably linked with Hitler’s machinations in Yellowstone National Park as he attempts to make the supervolcano explode.

Pliny is escaping his own volcano, Vesuvius in 79AD which is exploding to cover southern Italy in ash. But he is also a statesman who has served as governor in the Roman province of Germany and who has written essays badmouthing the Germans.
Cheops Books LLC will issue a joint edition of the two thriller novels by Dora Benley after Pliny: The Thriller is published. It will be Pliny: The Thriller and Old Faithful Plot.

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. Hitler threatens to blow up Yellowstone if they don’t hand over the maps. And Hitler has an even darker plot in store for Pliny.

Pliny the Elder, or Gaius Plinius Secundus, was an ancient Roman scientist, essayist, and thinker, probably the greatest mind of the first century AD. He had an office right next door to what later became the Porta Nigra in Trier.

What was he doing there, hundreds of miles away from his home in Rome? Trier was the oldest Roman city in Germany. He had been appointed Governor of the Province of Germany probably by the Emperor Vespasian and his son, the Emperor Titus. No doubt he studied the birds there as well as the flora and fauna since he was the first to write an encyclopedia called the Natural History, which was influential for centuries.
He was carrying on business as usual here early in the summer of 79AD before packing his bags and returning home for a summer at the seaside south of Rome at one of his villas near the Vesuvius Volcano which unknown to any mortal that summer was about to erupt.

According to legend that is how Pliny died. He was leading an expedition to save those too near the volcano when the volcano sent a rain of ash down upon him. Italian archaeologists now think they may have discovered his remains in a ship in the Bay of Naples near the volcano.

But the novel offers a different explanation for his mysterious disappearance. He was being pursued by German warriors for writing a derisive work about their peoples and culture called the Germania. And that was where Hitler came in.

But did he escape or not? Pliny: The Thriller may present surprising answers. It is the latest book in the Edward Ware Thrillers at War Series. And what happens at the end of Old Faithful Plot? Only time will tell.

Will Trump Survive His First Term?

I don’t think that there is any danger that Trump won’t survive his first term unless somebody shoots him. But as I said before it is useless to start an investigation that has anything to do with Russians still in Russia. You cannot fully investigate them. They won’t cooperate. And you can’t make them come here for questioning. This is only of the aspects of this scandal/rumor that makes it MOST like a TV series and not reality — the Russian involvement. You just know the scandal isn’t going anywhere when they say Russians are involved even if it seem to get bigger and the scandal gets blown out of all proportion. What to do? Somebody ought to film it and sell it. Should this be the subject of the next Cheops Books LLC thriller novel by Dora Benley?

Denmark is not a land of castles. Perhaps it is too flat. We usually think of castles sitting up on hills or at least hillocks. England has far more spooky medieval edifices. But Denmark has at least one very infamous castle by the name of Kronborg in the town of Helsingor by the sea. It is about one hour from Copenhagen and promises all sorts of spooky adventures to anyone brave enough to enter the doors and visit where Hamlet once roamed and Hamlet’s ghost once haunted the stone walls. Cheops Books LLC will visit Kronborg in the upcoming thriller Murder at Hamlet’s Castle. Hopefully it will sell as many copies as Dan Brown.
