James has a nose for trouble. But that’s nothing new.

James is the chief editor of a small newspaper. It’s hardly captivating work. He’s bored. But, all of that is about to change.


Late one evening, he returns home to discover that his long-time girlfriend and journalist, Valentine, has left. Early the next morning, James fails to reallocate her assigned story. To avoid blank space in the culture section and losing his job, he decides to write the story on the local museum’s latest acquisition, Excalibur.


But, there’s one thing he didn’t count on…


….Excalibur is missing, and a dead body is at the crime scene.


As his investigations commence, James attempts to unravel a tangled web of betrayal, kidnapping and murder. But, his fact-finding hasn’t gone unrecognised. The wrong people have started to notice. And, there will be consequences… dire consequences.
