Above Angelina’s Tavern in the down-and-dirty town of Neceda you’ll find the office of Eddie LaCrosse, a freelance sword jockey who, for twenty-five gold pieces a day, will take on any task short of murder for hire. Alex Bledsoe’s Eddie LaCrosse novels are “An entertaining, well-crafted melding of fantasy and hard-boiled detective fiction” (Kirkus Reviews on Burn Me Deadly).
For twenty-five gold pieces a day, plus expenses, Eddie LaCrosse will take on almost any case. But the unexpected delivery of a coffin in the dead of winter forces LaCrosse to look at a bygone chapter...
Eddie LaCrosse, a sword-wielding private investigator, has tried to distance himself from a shadowy and tragic past. When a king enlists his help, LaCrosse must come to grips with the horrific events of his youth.
