In the penultimate tale of the Nightside, private detective John Taylor becomes the reluctant owner of the legendary Excalibur sword - a very powerful, very dangerous weapon - and he must return to London Proper to discover why.
Private eye John Taylor has a supernatural gift for finding things - but when the legendary sword Excalibur finds him instead, he really wishes it hadn't . . .
Most people would be happy to receive the legendary sword Excalibur in the mail one day, but private eye John Taylor knows better. The weapon is extremely powerful, but it is also extremely dangerous and - of course - a portent of perilous times to come.
If he's going to find out more about the sword, and why he's been chosen to wield it, Taylor must find and investigate the Last Defenders of Camelot.
And to do that, he's going to have to visit a place he fears more than even the Nightside . . .
