“Tina Turner loves it! Simply the best ”

Written on: 13/08/2017 by MiguelMorris293 (1 review written)

Never judge a book by its opening chapter This gets so kool and convoluted you may lose your marbles once you get into the amazing maze of mind games and disinfo and deceit and treachery and much more The action leaves Bond and Bourne static The plot leaves Smiley in tears So kool but where is the TV series?… Read Full Review

Thank you so much for your five star review. We are still seeking partners to create a TV series based on Beyond Enkription and remain confident that in time we will have a positive outcome for that and then for the rest of The Burlington Files series. Best wishes - Bill Fairclough

“Don't fly without it!”

Written on: 13/04/2017 by ridingthroughbuty (1 review written)

I never thought O’Hare to Heathrow could be so exciting. I got the Kindle Version last week for the long haul. Apart from an annoying dinner break and one hurried visit to the bathroom I didn’t stop until we landed. What a start to an autobiography? It is astonishing to think people all over the world have heard of James Bond but few have probably heard of the more realistic, altruistic and thinking spy Edward Burlington, alias Bill Fairclough. I thought Bourne was the greatest too but no… Read Full Review

Thanks for the terrific review and the strap line "Don't fly without it!". If only all people on long haul flights took a copy of Beyond Enkription with them to read then the world might be a better place ... particularly if the eBooks they read weren't pirated copies.
Just keep watching for news on the film front - we still live in hope. In the meantime we trust you enjoy reading it again - most people we hear from seem to do so. Best wishes and many thanks - Bill Fairclough

“The Burlington Files: Beyond Enkription - a brilliant...”

Written on: 02/01/2017 by infinitespace (1 review written)

The Burlington Files: Beyond Enkription is better than well worth one read. I have read it twice. I wonder if I read it again if it will be as different a read as the second was to the first. As for the characters the likes of Chad and Sara really come to life but Edward Burlington is the true conundrum. Love him, envy him or loathe him - well I experienced all three emotions particularly on the second read. Some of the book is a bit of a lecture but then Bill Fairclough or whoever wrote it is… Read Full Review

Thank you so much for your thoughtful review. You are right about Edward Burlington's character in Beyond Enkription (The Burlington Files) because we chose to try and make him as bland as possible to enable film production companies and actors to "make of him" what they felt best suited their plans (having regard to the other five unpublished novels).

Of course, it is difficult for those reading Beyond Enkription to second guess the contents of the remaining five other novels as they have not been published yet but the books were written for film purposes as you noted when visiting TheBurlingtonFiles website. By that we mean that we only prepared the books to help film producers decide how to make films or TV series based on them and we did not set out to create works of art although obviously we wanted the plots (which regarding Edward were real) to come across well.

Due to financial constraints we won't be publishing the remaining books until we have a film deal or the like as we have already spent a fortune in time and other costs on the publication of Beyond Enkription and the preparation of the remaining novels even though we have intentionally not advertised or marketed the series in any serious way whatsoever yet. By fortune we mean hundreds of thousands of pounds if you put only a modest value on the hours that have gone into this project. Thus we apologise but it is unlikely another novel will be published before any films are released. Thanks again for your review which is much appreciated.

“Coincidences Happen”

Written on: 28/12/2016 by Hughes280 (1 review written)

While talking to a client we discussed spy novels and she said her favourite was Beyond Enkription of The Burlington Files. It was mine too but for totally different reasons. She loved Edward Burlington for being better than Bond but I liked Edward Burlington's character because he has so many flaws. Only after a five minute chat did we reconcile our differences and lucky for me too as she reminded me a bit of Sara Burlington - as a legend - naturally! The point is the novel was written for… Read Full Review

“Reading it again and enjoying more every chapter”

Written on: 26/11/2014 by AylaRalston156 (1 review written)

My brothers loved reading this so I got some more to give for Xmas presents. Most of the reviews the author refers to on his website are just what I would write if I could make such clever comments. This is as they say the real stuff films are made of. It was a thriller and I am half way through reading it again and learning more and more about this Burlington crowd and the cold war. On Twitter the author says it is the longest spy book this century. He should say it is the best spy book this… Read Full Review

“Les girls fom the BookCriticsClub liked Beyond Enkription”

Written on: 06/09/2014

WE are an "all girl band" of readers although some of us are no longer girls but we all enjoyed reading Beyond Enkription no matter what our ages were. This is our first review at the Review Centre. WE all liked the book because it was so different and real compared to other spy novel thrillers we have read. WE should have all got the eBook as it is much cheaper than the paperback but the book is huge so we did not feel ripped off. WE debated what was fact and fiction as we could not tell… Read Full Review
