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.

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.
