Pestilence....breathe if you dare!
The year is 1958, the place, an idyllic village in the heart of the English countryside. Olney St. Mary has stood in its
peaceful rural location for over 900 years. Suddenly however, the peace

the cause of their malady. Her initial diagnosis is terribly and

too late, or will they too join the growing list of names that appear on
the roll of death roll in Olney St. Mary?

An Excellent Read,
By Brian L Porter
The story is set in a sleepy village in the heart of the Kent
countryside during the year 1958. The Second World War is over and now
nothing extraordinary ever happens in Olney St. Mary. The people are
peaceful and law abiding, as they go about their day-to-day lives.
Therefore how could anyone expect the horror that was about to unfold
and disrupt this small community forever.
Brian L Porter describes the grim reality of a situation that could
very easily have happened. The characters are totally believable, as
they desperately try to understand what is going on around them, when
one by one their friends and neighbours are stricken with an illness no
one recognises. Doctors and nurses are flown to the scene to help the
sick, while men from the Ministry arrive to contain the disease. But
then as the plot unfolds, we learn that everyone and everything is not
as it seems. What really caused the illness? Who is the traitor in their
midst? Who can be trusted? It is only in the final chapters that the
truth and the full horror of what really happened are revealed.
Pestilence is an edge of the seat thriller. I found that once I
started reading, I couldn't put the book down. The author cleverly leads
the reader through several possible explanations before finally
declaring both the culprit and the reason for their deception. A
thoroughly good read and a `must have' for all those who enjoy
