A Merlin Investigation Series : Titles in Order

Book 3
Merlin investigates a royal mystery at Stonehenge.

A baron and his sons are found dead at Stonehenge. King Arthur’s potential heirs start to mysteriously die. And only Merlin can prove that the murders are not the work of the plague, but something much more sinister.
Book 2
Throughout Camelot, he is whispered to be a magician, a sorcerer, a wizard. But Merlin is merely a scholar, a practitioner of medicine, and King Arthur’s trusted advisor. Though he possesses no otherworldly abilities, his keen intellect grants him certain powers of deduction.
 
Arthur, king of all the Britains, has not been fortunate in his marriage. His queen, Guenevere, has long kept her own court in the forbidding castle known as the Spider’s House, living there openly with the knight Lancelot. Still, even Merlin, who has little use for the pair, would never have predicted that they would plot to present themselves to the Byzantium Empire as the rightful rulers of England!
 
They plan to announce this at Guen’s birthday celebration, to which Arthur is invited. Forewarned, King and counselor make their own plans for thwarting the two. But as the guests gather, Guenevere’s father is found murdered—and Lancelot is the prime suspect. Merlin is inclined to leave the faithless knight to his fate—yet when his king bids him to, he risks his very life to find the truth.
Book 1
Throughout Camelot, he is whispered to be a magician, a sorcerer, a wizard. But Merlin is merely a scholar, a practitioner of medicine, and King Arthur’s trusted advisor. Though he possesses no otherworldly abilities, his keen intellect grants him certain powers of deduction.
 
Though he labored to help Arthur unite all of the Britons under his rule, Merlin’s work is not done. The vassal kings are a contentious, superstitious rabble, who have not easily accepted Arthur as their liege. And Arthur himself, to Merlin’s distress, is still prey to the old beliefs. He is convinced that he can bring peace and prosperity to Camelot with the Stone of Bran, an ancient skull-shaped artifact purported to be magical.
 
But after it is stolen from the king’s own private chambers—along with the legendary sword Excalibur—and one of Arthur’s squires is brutally murdered during the theft, Merlin, along with his apprentice Colin (the maiden Nimue in disguise) must use the power of reason to conjure up a miracle and catch a murderer.
