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.
Praise for Jason Monaghan:
'...combines authentic scholarly detail with breakneck pacing to create a first-rate thriller' Publisher's Weekly on Shadow In The Corn.
Jason Foss was the original pen name of Dr Jason Monaghan under which he began the Jeffrey Flint and Maddy Crowe series of archaeological thrillers. As an archaeologist Jason has published a number of textbooks on shipwrecks and Roman pottery, and his travels have inspired his fiction. His first four novels were ‘Darkness Rises’, ‘Byron’s Shadow’, ‘Shadesmoor’ and ‘Lady in the Lake’. Unlikely twists in his career saw him working as a merchant banker, anti-money laundering specialist and Museum Director. He is an active member of the Crime Writers Association and lives on the island of Guernsey.

From Kirkus Reviews: You're never too dead to become a media event--at least, not if you're King Arthur, and your legendary sword Excalibur has just been discovered by amateur academic Lady Harriet Dunning, who's practically as old as Arthur herself. Forensic archeologist Jeffrey Flint, called in to authenticate the sword for the insurance company, doesn't want the find to be genuine (imagine the nightmare for the insurers if it is!), but when the scientific tests check out, he braces himself for the unveiling of the sword, along with a spanking new copy, at a conference of the Pendragons. Alas, the copy is stolen even before a press announcement of the find can be made--soon followed by the priceless original--and when Lady Harry is found drowned under suspicious circumstances, Flint sadly realizes you can indeed be all too dead. The search for Harry's killer will take him through a mazy interlocking directorate of museum types, Arthurian buffs, heirs-apparent, and itinerant magicians attached to a group guilelessly dubbing itself the Arthur Roadshow. But the clue to the death of the latest Lady in the Lake lies, ironically enough, in the corpse of the beloved Alsatian that died along with her. This flatfooted mystery from Foss (Shadesmoor, not reviewed)--the miscreant is well-hidden, but the motive is both obvious and disappointing--is considerably pepped up by the generous helping of antic medievalists, most of whom are a lot less sharp than Excalibur. -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP.
