When an ancient sword is found beside a Somerset lake, the insurance company engages archaeologist Dr Jeffrey Flint to investigate whether this really is Excalibur, the fabled blade of King Arthur.
Convinced the sword is a fake, Flint is confronted by a bizarre academic conundrum where death is always lurking beneath the surface.
With the aid of his tenacious assistant, Tyrone Drake, Flint follows a trail which weaves in and out of English folklore.
Where ancient legends are met by relentless media hype, a conspiracy take shape, and tragedy soon surrounds the mystery of the lady in the lake.
'Lady in the Lake' is an expertly plotted mystery featuring the popular character of Dr Flint.
