Published posthumously by the author’s sons, The Grey Haired Knights is a series of four whimsical fantasy novels set in the present day and drawing on the legend of King Arthur for their inspiration. The books feature four old codgers trapped by bureaucracy in a dull and dreary rehabilitation unit. Arthur Thomas, the eldest, is worried that boredom is reducing their zest for life and persuades each man to tell a story. Unknown to them, but known to the reader, Merlin chooses Arthur’s eloquence to inspire him and his three companions to take on the mantle of the Grey Haired Knights, each to seek and find a year long quest and vow to then return and relate their adventure. As his Quest Arthur, a retired Police Superintendent, chooses to recover a stolen Ingres masterpiece. The tale embraces mystery, intrigue, continental travel and a touching September love affair.
