Jessica Tregarth has been summoned to England to meet a grandfather she has never met. Included in the summons is an instruction to bring an old ring that Jessica's father stole from the family many years before.
She believes the ring is worthless but before being in the country many hours she has been accosted by two strangers demanding she hand the ring over to them.
Thus begins her cross country flight to avoid her pursuers. Along the way she meets David Randall, a writer of gothic novels who claims he will protect her. As Jess journeys through many of the medieval towns and cathedrals in south eastern England on her way to Cornwall, the clues begin to point to an Arthurian connection and her cousin John becomes her prime suspect.
Jess and David arrive at the family estate to find her grandfather dead, just in time for the the funeral and the reading of the will. As final clues are revealed Jess realizes that those who have set out to claim the Tregarth estate as the site of Camelot will stop at nothing to accomplish their plans and the ring which could depict the sword in the stone hold the key to their success.
