Five British historical mystery writers have created this mystery series revolving around the 1191 discovery of two sets of bones and an ancient iron cross inscribed “Hic iacet sepultus inclitus rex arturius” (Here lies buried the renowned King Arthur). Paul Matthews performs this intricate tale in a grandfatherly tone and a mixture of English accents and soft Welsh brogues. When Prince Meurig ap Rhys rescues the bones from a grave in Glastonbury Abbey, what follows is war, bloodshed, and numerous murders throughout time in both Wales and England. Matthews handles Welsh names and medieval terms flawlessly as he recounts details of the battles and crimes. Are the bones King Arthur’s? Only the authors know. Matthews’s creative narration draws the listener into the quest to untangle several centuries of lies, motives, and thefts in order to protect the precious bones.
