Alex Bledsoe’s novels featuring detective Eddie LaCrosse have drawn rave reviews for their ingenious blend of classic fantasy and hard-boiled detective fiction. Now with Dark Jenny, Bledsoe returns with an all-new tale of intrigue and murder. . . .

For twenty-five gold pieces a day, plus expenses, Eddie LaCrosse will take on most any case. But the unexpected delivery of a coffin in the dead of winter forces LaCrosse to look back at a bygone chapter in his past—and the premeditated murder of a dream.

Ruled by the noble King Marcus Drake, the island kingdom of Grand Braun is an oasis of peace and justice in an imperfect world. At least until the beautiful Queen Jennifer is accused of adultery and murder. In the wrong castle at the wrong time, Eddie finds himself drafted at sword’s point to solve the mystery. With time running out, and powerful nobles all too eager to pin the murder on Eddie himself, he must untangle a tangled web of palace intrigues, buried secrets, and bewitching women—before the entire kingdom erupts into civil war.

Murder, mystery, and magic—just another day on the job for Eddie LaCrosse.

Gary was used to that sort of response so he paid it no mind, and it stopped when he closed the door behind him. He shook snow from his long coat and looked around until he spotted me sitting with Liz at the bar.

“LaCrosse,” he said. “There’s somebody outside looking for you.

Praise for Dark Jenny

“[Burn Me Deadly] 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)

“A compelling story with fascinating characters—who are so witty and whose attitude is so wry that I laughed and cared.”—Orson Scott Card on The Sword-Edged Blonde

“Both stylish and self-assured: Raymond Chandler meets Raymond E. Feist.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) on The Sword-Edged Blonde
