The year is 1946. Fourteen-year-old Doc Merriweather and his best friends, Margo and Arnie, have decided to open their own detective agency. As luck would have it, their first client is a Miss Anderson, who has been threatened by a stranger calling himself Smith. Smith is determined to get his hands on an unusual carved wooden box sent to Miss Anderson by her fiancee during the war. The box contains a secret map to the battle horn of the legendary King Arthur. It now falls to Doc and his trusty companions to find the map and travel to England to locate the ancient horn. But the unexpected appearance of Smith on a lonely Kentish moor may well spell disaster for our young sleuths!
