Alfred Kropp is the last person you’d think could save the world. But when this oversized underachiever gets roped into a suspicious get-rich-quick scheme, his life takes a turn for the extraordinary. Little does Alfred know he has been tricked into stealing Excalibur, the legendary sword of King Arthur, and the most powerful weapon ever wielded by man.

With an ancient order of knights in hot cars, thugs on motorcycles, and a mysterious international organization following his every lumbering step, Alfred undertakes a modern day quest to unravel a thousand year old mystery and return the sword to its rightful place.

    " Geeze. What a joke. Yes, this book is stupid, but I actually like some books that are admittedly stupid. The greatest flaw of this book is its incredibly annoying, unrelatable, apathetic protagonist. "

    " The number one reason I recommend this book? Truly great voice of Alfred, the main character. Actually bought this as a gift for my husband after I'd listened to it on CD, because I liked the humor of a YA MC that actually sounded like a teen. "
