The same sun that brought light to the day in Stratford-on-Avon broke through the curtains that had held back the night in Joe's room, some eighty-three miles, or 134 kilometres distance from Capshaw's mansion. The room felt warmer than it had for the last few days, and Joe himself felt a cheerfulness that came from a good night's sleep. The previous evening's conversation and the brandy had helped, but somehow Joe knew the presence of Lucius Doberman had made a difference to his overall mood. He wasn't sure exactly how the learned professor was going to make a difference to their quest in solving the riddle posed by Capshaw and Graves; he just instinctively knew that he would.
Joe Cutler is the owner of Strata Survey Company. He and his employees Winston Fortune and Sally Corbett have been hired by millionaire Malcolm Capshaw to find non other than the sword which was fabled to be owned by King Author. In other words, the Excalibur. Capshaw has provided them with a map that is 'supposed' to show the general area of where the sword was buried. He has also supplied them with a noted historian professor who goes by the name of Walter Graves.
So, does King Author and his sword Excalibur really exist or is this just a wild goose chase? Or - is it truly just a myth?
Except for a clue and hint here and there, this author kept me in the dark until the end. It has more twists and turns than a roller coaster. And if I read the end of the book correctly, there will be a second book coming out with some of the main characters and of course a story full of suspense.
