All is not well in Camelot. In the midst of the celebration of a successful quest by Sir Percival for the Stone of Bran, the Stone itself is stolen, along with Excalibur. Worse yet, one of Arthur's young squires is brutally murdered, and all Camelot is seized by suspicion, distrust and fear. From official release/information:
Product Description: Merlin makes a great investigator—and it only looks like magic. Merlin is no magician, merely a scholar and advisor to King Arthur. But after the supposedly magical Stone of Bran is stolen—along with the legendary sword Excalibur—and one of Arthur's squires is brutally murdered during the theft, Merlin must use the power of reason to conjure up a miracle and catch a murderer.
