My impressions: mystical, myth,
Enrique ‘Rique’ Allmers – owner of Chase P.I. agency in Germany.
Jerome Petit – ex-Foreign Legion officer, now Chase P.I.

When the inebriated body of Ronald Campbell is drowned after a car accident, his sons know it was murder; their father never imbibed alcoholic drinks. His son, James Campbell had been in the French Foreign Legion with Jerome and requested the services of the Chase agency.
The plot centers around a theory that the mythical King Arthur of the round table was a real figure and ruled Scotland when he died. Ronald Campbell was one of four Marshals of the Heredem Merlinum, The Heirs of Merlin charged over the centuries with protecting the King Arthur documents. If proved to be true the present heir of King Arthur would be crowned king of Scotland.
Deep research revealed history changing evidence to support the claims. An opposition group wants the evidence destroyed and that leads to several action filled confrontations.
Action scenes are well thought out.
Editing, sentence structure and character development are excellent.
The plot was interesting and had enough action to keep me interested in spite of the time devoted to discussing faux ancient archives.
I can recommend this story for history buffs and those who like the detailed references to King Arthur’s time.
