Lancelot Lamar is a disenchanted lawyer who finds himself confined in a mental asylum with memories that don't seem worth remembering until a visit from an old friend and classmate gives him the opportunity to recount his journey of dark violence.

It began the day he accidentally discovered he was not the father of his youngest daughter. That discovery touched off his obsession to reverse the degeneration of modern America and begin a new age of chivalry and romance. With ever-increasing fury, Lancelot would become a shining knight -- not of romance, but of revenge . . .
