Publisher's summary[]

Original German[]

Merkwürdige Zufälle: Vor Englands Küste wird ein U-Boot von einem uralten Nachen gerammt. In der Nähe von Liverpool wird ein Mann aufgegriffen, der einen unbekannten Dialekt spricht. Und nahe dem belgischen Gent arbeiten die deutschen Besatzer an einem äußerst merkwürdigen Geheimprojekt - einer mittelalterlichen Burg. Man schreibt das Jahr 1940, und Indiana Jones hat alle Hände voll zu tun: mit einem Professor auf der Flucht, mit Nazi-Knallchargen, die sich ihre Ohrfeigen redlich verdient haben, und einer blutjungen belgischen Widerstandskämpferin. Bis ihm dämmert worum es geht. Um das Schwer Excalibur - die legendäre Klinge König Arturs, die jetzt zum Henkerseisen werden soll.

Strange coincidences: a submarine is rammed by an ancient boat off the coast of England. A man who speaks an unknown dialect is caught near Liverpool. And near Ghent, Belgium, the German occupiers are working on an extremely strange secret project - a medieval castle. The year is 1940 and Indiana Jones has its hands full: with a professor on the run, with Nazi bombshells who have earned their slaps, and a very young Belgian resistance fighter. Until it dawns on him what it's about. To the hard Excalibur - the legendary blade of King Arthur, which is now to become the executioner's iron.
