Book Description

There is a mystery in a chapel, and a man who must find the answer.

Heavy-drinking, chain-smoking, television pro Ian Graham just wanted a new paying job, but when he arrives at Scotland’s mysterious Rosslyn Chapel to shoot a dramatic for-TV documentary, he’s thrown a different fate altogether - one from 1307 to be exact. When he wakes up seven hundred years away from his own life, Ian must live as an initiate of the Order of the Temple, seek the forgotten truth of Rosslyn’s past, and escape the doom of the Templars before he can’t return.

About the Author

Walter grew up in Massachusetts, and attended Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine. He was an exchange student in Munich in 1979-80, the year he met his wife, Lisa, who was a graduate student in Switzerland at the time. They married in 1982. Walt considers it the best decision he ever made. He is a baseball fan and a Freemason, and enjoys boardgames and roleplaying games; between those interests and his family, he has a very busy life. Still, he enjoys writing most of all - there's nothing like doing something you love (and getting paid for it.) He qualifys as a recovering programmer (10 years) and also a recovering technical writer (8 years). For the last four years he's been writing full time, which has brought some success and even more satisfaction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly imaginative November 26, 2008
By Kaye
Format:Hardcover
Ian Graham, an unemployed television interviewer, gets a job offer to do a documentary on the mystery of Rosslyn Chapel in Scotland. Ian takes the tour to get a feel for the location. As the guide is talking about the mysterious stone carvings during the tour, Ian starts to hear a humming noise that intensifies as he goes farther. The guide explains that the stones have a meaning but that it has been lost to history.
Not only does Ian hear a humming noise as the guide speaks, he thinks he is hearing his agent and another man talking in the crypts area. He then begins to hear music that no one else seems to hear. As the music swells, he hears the words " truth conquers all" in his head. Fade to black as Ian falls into nothingness.

When Ian awakens, he is but he isn't Ian. If this seems like an enigma, it is. He is Ian in body but not Ian of the 21st century. It seems he has been transported back to the year 1307 as an initiate of the Knights Templar making his way on a pilgrimage. The final destination is a location not to be built for another century or more. He has memory of his other self in the 21st century but also can function in the 14th , just as if he had lived there for years. Because Ian has the sole ability to hear the "healing music" he is a target for those who have it in for the Knights Templar. Ian knows that in approximately 6 weeks the King will give an order to rout out all the Knights Templar and arrest them. In order to save the music for the world, Ian must finish his pilgrimage and return to his own time. Will he be able to finish this dangerous but very important mission? Will it be in time ?

What an absolutely incredible imagination Mr. Hunt has!

4.0 out of 5 stars Templar Time Travel March 10, 2013
Format:Paperback
My tastes in science fiction tend toward what is known as 'hard' scifi. However, once I got over the breech in the laws of physics which allows the hero of the book to transport back in time into the body of a 14th century Templar knight, I really had a good time with the story.

The writing is very clear and almost cinematic in feeling. The author brings alive the sights and smells of the 1300's. It makes for a compelling adventure and I was eager to turn the pages to see what was going to happen next.

Dealing with time travel can be very tricky, but the author handles the back and forth of the overlapping time-lines very well with out getting the reader lost.

There is a wealth of arcane masonic and Templar lore to be had and the medieval sites and cathedrals mentioned in the book are mostly still around to be seen. This book adds a dimension to our enjoyment and appreciation of those monuments.

4.0 out of 5 stars For fans of Dan Brown August 2, 2011
Format:Paperback
I happened across this book at our library, and I plan to be buying myself a copy! It had the same fantastic feel that Dan Brown's books, or the movies National Treasure have, historical fiction filled with so much truth, it's just an imposible to put down read, and something I plan to suggest to all of my friends to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Masonic Fiction I Have Read June 22, 2011
Format:Paperback
This is hands down the best Masonic fiction I have had the pleasure to read. The story is accurate historically in many ways, lots of truth and a dash of fiction to make it an excellent and fantastic web. Paul Di Fillipo wrote to me once that "Life is Fantasy" and I agree. When we allow ourselves to imagine we can often manifest the best parts of ourselves in life.

I recommend this book to all Masons and profane alike. It is just one heck of a fun ride and it opens and enlightens the mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Song in Stone November 8, 2008
Format:Hardcover
I think this is the best book Walter has written so far. The characters are engaging and the book contains some of my favorite elements: magic, time travel, and a mystery. I was lucky enough to read the book in typescript and was very impatient for Walter to finish the story. I hope he will write more books like this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique Templar Story. March 6, 2014
By Bulldog
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have well over 20 books concerning the Knights Templar. Some are purely historical accounts, others are novels. A Song in Stone satisfies on both counts. Mr. Hunt's creativity adds a new dimension into historical fiction which is a breath of fresh air. The characters are well developed, the story is very unique and the historical detail is excellent. This book can appeal to people on many levels and is well worth a read. Time Travel, Mystery and the Knights Templar how is that not compelling?

5.0 out of 5 stars time travel adventure February 27, 2014
By Sandi
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book was quite good (confusing at times, but think that was more me than the story line - lol). It was a quick read, and pulled you in.
I would recommend the book to those who like mystery & intrigue. It intertwines discovery of oneself with a mission, breaking the mold of what is normal & know.

Very unusual book. It had tremendous historical detail and went on and on and on. It wasn't boring exactly, because it had some interesting parts. Still wouldn't recommend to friends.

It was an interesting story, a little odd in the development of the plot, a little short in tying all the threads together. It was okay.
