Alex Bledsoe’s first novel, The Sword-Edged Blonde, drew rave reviews for its ingenious blend of fantasy and hard-boiled detective fiction. Now Bledsoe returns with another tale of mean streets and medieval intrigue.

Above Angelina’s Tavern in down-and-dirty Neceda, you’ll find the office of Eddie LaCrosse. He’s a scruffy freelance sword jockey who, for twenty-five gold pieces a day plus expenses, will handle any problem short of murder for hire. Eddie’s on his way back from a routine investigation when his horse almost runs down a half-naked blonde in serious trouble. Against his better judgment, he promises to protect the frightened young woman, only to find himself waylaid by unknown assailants and left for dead beside her mutilated body.

Eddie isn’t the kind of guy to just let something like this pass. But who killed Laura Lesperitt? Eddie’s quest for payback leads him to a tangled mystery involving a notorious crime lord, a backwoods dragon cult, royal scandals, and a duplicitous femme fatale who has trouble keeping her clothes on. As bodies pile up, Eddie must use all his wits if he hopes to survive.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Hardboiled high fantasy—what’s not to like? Bledsoe keeps me reading from the first page, and I’m always eager for the next installment when the last page is turned.”

    Charles de Lint 

  • “Proving that 2007’s The Sword-Edged Blonde was no fluke, this sequel gives every evidence that Bledsoe’s combination of sword and sorcery with hard-boiled detection will have a long and successful run…Bledsoe effortlessly draws readers into his created world and manages to stay true to both fantasy and mystery traditions.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Narrator Stefan Rudnicki hooks listeners from the start, piquing interest even before the story’s direction becomes evident. His deep voice gives LaCrosse’s first-person tough-guy account an authentic pulp edge, bringing in realistic emotion for the human toll of the case and making the genre-crossing irresistible. Rudnicki is also good at voicing supporting characters. This is a story listeners HAVE to hear—reading print just won’t be the same.”

    AudioFile

  • “An entertaining, well-crafted melding of fantasy and hard-boiled detective fiction…Aficionados of tough-guy mysteries will find much to enjoy, and fantasy fans will appreciate the swordplay and the fully realized medieval society Bledsoe has constructed. Best of all, it’s not necessary to have read the first installment to enjoy this one.”
