Is there any truth at all?A journey through Wales is like waking up in a detective story, and in this book youre travelling with the genuine article...John Wake was a police detective for over two decades. I joined him one week on his hard-boiled evidence trail, searching for clues in old churches and ruins. I learned first-hand that no one is better qualified to decipher a topic so full of misinformation, hidden agendas, personal interest and competing national myths. The Camelot Inquisition unravels Arthurs story one careful piece of evidence at a time. Not admissible in court? Then its not an acceptable clue. Did Arthur live? Was he a real man? Was there a real Merlin, or a noble Round Table of chivalrous knights? John Wake puts the legend on trial, and more than Arthurs life is at stake. At question is his very existence. The verdict is in.Ryan Murdock Editor-at-large (Europe) for Outpost, and author of: Vagabond Dreams: Road Wisdom from Central America.Ive known John Wake as both a tenacious police detective and as a serious historian, a rare combination and there is no one better suited to getting at the truth behind the legend of King Arthur.Alan Torjussen, TV Director and Producer, Genesis Media Group.Move over Merlin, Johns working his detective magic on this case.Bob Kappstatter, former Crime Reporter, New York Daily News.
