Product Description

Review

"Impeccably researched and high on intrigue, the opening chapter will have you absolutely hooked from the explosive start." (Saturday (Supp. to the Scottish Daily Record))

Book Description

The explosive new historical thriller from the author of The Doomsday Testament and The Isis Covenant.

From the Back Cover

It had been kept hidden for centuries, in readiness for a time of need. But not hidden well enough, it seems. One night in July 1937, it vanished – its disappearance swallowed up in the storm clouds of the war that was about to engulf the world . . .

In 1941, twelve of Himmler’s most trusted generals gather at a grim castle in East Prussia, to re-enact an ancient rite steeped in blood. At its heart is a pentagram formed by five swords. One of them is King Arthur’s mystical Excalibur . . .

Seventy years later, and art recovery expert Jamie Saintclair laughs in disbelief as he reads the codex to a German war veteran’s will, the strange ritual it describes and the mention of a sword named Excalibur. But obsessive collector Adam Steele is convinced – and if Saintclair can trace the legendary blade, he will pay a small fortune for it . . .

The search leads Saintclair into a dangerous hinterland where the loyalties and hatreds of the past live on, and the line between fanaticism and madness is gossamer thin.

As the last piece of the puzzle falls into place, it becomes clear that some mysteries should be left unsolved . . .
