    Brian L Porter is a man of many literary talents, as demonstrated by his medical thriller Pestilence and his poetry compilation Lest We Forget The native Liverpudlian shows what he knows in using Merrie Olde England as his backdrop for his works, going from the fictitious Olney St Mary in Pestilence to the skies over Great Britain with his WWII prose collection His lost treasure melodrama, Glastonbury, centers on the town in Somerset where two teams of fortune hunters square off in a death match [...]

    Glastonbury is one of the most fun reads I have encountered this year Porter has provided a great cast of ensemble players plopped down in the middle of a real mystery wrapped in an enigma and an ending that includes everything except a cavalry charge I loved it.It is difficult to say much about the plot for fear of dropping in a spoiler, but I can say it is well plotted, tight and fast moving and will keep you guessing up until the last page The book, although about a group of specialist in mod [...]

    In any book by Brian L Porter the first thing you notice is how well the characters are created, fleshed out Once the characters are in evidence and known then you begin to see the story unfold, piece by piece In each of his stories you also see a great similarity in writing style to that of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in the Sherlock Holmes stories One fact takes you to another, to another and soon you are scratching your head and wondering just what the hell is going on And then you find out, but n [...]

    Riveting thrillerI couldn t put this book down Full of suspense and kept my interest throughout Even though there were a couple of edits that needed to be made I still gave the book a five I highly recommend it.

    Glastonburyby Brian L PorterI was sold on this book just by the title, Glastonbury long being thought the location of the Isle of Avalon of the King Arthur legend And, although that legend plays a pivotal part of the reason the characters become involved in this novel s storyline, the book is never really about the legend The author is from the UK, so there were the differences in sentence construction, spelling, slang, etc for me, a reader from the US, to contend with I read several UK authors, [...]

    Twists and turns abound Well written, believable and likeable characters This book will keep you interested and on your toes, with a surprise ending I m looking forward to the next one.

    Glastonbury Review by Martha A Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat King Arthur did exist, Mr Cutler I m convinced of it, and this document will help to prove it to you I can t reveal to you where it came from or how it came into my possession, but a lot of people have died over the years to protect it and the information it holds I m a wealthy man as you already know, and the money itself is not of great importance to me I thought that you would appreciate a large cash injection into your busi [...]

    Unexpected Twisty EndingGlastonbury, by Brian L Porter, is yet another twisty mystery in Porter s inimitable style I was drawn into this story because I have lived near Stratford On Avon and spent a lot of time there and in surrounding areas The setting of Glastonbury and surrounding story areas was like taking a walk through my memories of England, though I have no memories of murder and mayhem Nor do my memories of my time spent there include knowledge of Excalibur and the legend of King Arthu [...]

    I fell for the mention of Glastonbury Tor and the legends of King Arthur when I bought this book It turned out not to be quite what I expected, although the promise of a search for Excalibur had been used as an enticement to some of the cast of characters Joe Cutler owns Strata Survey Systems and has accepted the job of finding the famous, probably legendary, sword, using a supposedly ancient map That s not what they find, however.On the positive side, this is an action adventure story drawing t [...]

    GlastonburyThe title and the cover of the book were what first caught my attention, and the storyline of a search for King Arthur and Excalibur instantly pulled me in That eventually changed but by then I was invested in the book and the characters, and had to continue to the end The final twist took me by surprise and left me wanting I look forward to from this author There are some adult scenes, violence and language, not too much but some, so I would recommend this book for adults It was a [...]

    This book is full of suspense as Joe Cutler and his team search for Excalibur around Glastonbury Walter Graves is there as an expert to help them but all he does is make phone calls Is he really going to help or will he hinder them There is a lot of mystery around this artifact Does Excalibur really exist A London crime family are very interested in what will be dug up What are they hoping it will be, and are they a danger to Strata Survey Systems

    Good Mystery ThrillerI quite enjoyed this book and found the mystery entertaining and challenging I would have actually given the book 4.5 stars if allowed I was only kept from giving it 5 stars because I felt the ending was a bit too contrived I did like it anyway and recommend it as an interesting read.

    Fun readingLove the aura and mystery of the Glastonbury region Porter stayed focused and wrote a fun and intriguing tale Liked the characters , especially the mystery surrounding Graves Quick read Fun.

    I have always reading enjoyed anything about the King Arthur and Camelot legends, so I thought this book was fun Perhaps it spent too much time and energy on the early druidic myths for my particular interests, but it was overall well done of its kind.

    All star mystery This was an intriguing story that started as a medieval search and ended solving a Ww2 puzzle only changing late in the tale

    Great readThis book was a great quick read, looking forward to reading books by this author Again this was a good book.

    Waste of time Could have been really good, but the writing was not great and the plot line very slow and tortured.
