My fingers would barely flex at all, and the swelling reached the second knuckles. I must’ve been really angry to throw such a clumsy punch. And the damn manacles hadn’t helped. And the damn manacles hadn’t helped ile I waited for my room, I looked over some of the other tapestries. One especially held my attention. It showed Marcus Drake as a teenage boy, pulling Belacrux from the tree where it had been embedded awaiting the island’s true king

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 of his life―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 unravel 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.

Eddie LaCrosse is a self described `Sword Jockey'. A former mercenary turned P.I (albeit middle-ages style), Eddie is hired to check up on a nobleman suspected of adultery. A turn of events however has our wise-cracking hero at the pointy end of a sword, manacles on his wrists and a lot of people calling for his execution.

At a reception for Queen Jennifer Drake, a murder is committed with Eddie and the Queen herself as the prime suspects. With his life at stake, Eddie jumps into the investigation determined to clear his own name and bring the killer to justice. But immediately, he finds this is not a clear cut act of murder but a more involved political gambit to discredit the Queen and the throne.

Bledsoe weaves a wonderful tale of political intrigue, action and the right amount of humor. Drawing loosely on the legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Roundtable, the story unfolds with some familiarity and plenty of surprising changes, twists and characters that keep you guessing until the very end. The dialog is witty, the action scenes are fast and well placed, and the characters leave you wanting for more. This book, even though the third in the LaCrosse series easily stands alone.

Dark Jenny is the perfect crossover for both lovers of the classic hardboiled detective novels of Micky Spillain as well as those who love the high adventure styling found within the Arthurian legends.

A great read!!

A retelling of the Arthur story from the perspective of a psuedo-private eye, this story suffers from distracting incongruities in the setting, characters, and language. The Eddie Lacrosse stories take place in an undistinguished, low-magic fantasy world, but the characters act and speak more like they're in a shallow version of post-WWII Los Angeles than a place with medieval values and social hierarchies. For example, the protagonist is constantly described by himself and everyone around him as a "sword jockey", an awkward label for a mercenary private agent that sounds more like 20th Century slang than something out of a feudal environment.

This book tries to follow the path laid by Glen Cook's popular Garrett, P.I. books. But where Cook's tongue is firmly in his cheek as he uses the fantasy setting to poke some fun at the hard-boiled detective genre, Bledsoe plays it mostly straight, which makes the incongruities stand out in harsh relief. Can't recommend it.

Alex Bledsoe is one of my favorite authors, and I love his Eddie LaCrosse books most of all. The combination of sword and sorcery fantasy and noir detective novel is one of the most original, clever things I have ever seen, and Bledsoe pulls it off with panache and wit.

Eddie LaCrosse is a sword-jockey for hire and the books follow his various adventures. But the tale told on a winter's day of his travels years before to the island kingdom of Grand Braun hold an even more unusual theme than most...in this amazing take on the King Arthur story.

A must read, highly recommended.

Very entertaining. Alex Bledsoe never disappoints his readers. He delivers great fantasy fiction with characters that give the reader quite a thrill ride.

Hard, gritty and very good detective story. This series packs a punch, and tells not just one story, but several. It builds on each previous book a bit, so it's recommended to read them in order, although you don't have to.
I rate this as highly as books from Jim Butcher (YMMV, though).

Tried but just couldn't get into it.

This series by itself is phenominal, easily one of my favorite series out right now, given that so far all online orders for books I've put in have come to me damaged (you know,those slightly bent pages on the end, the occasional ripped page, and the few pages that didnt get enough ink and came out hazy looking) but other than the physical discrepancies the book itself is one of the best.
Each Eddie LaCrosse book gets better. I really enjoyed this one being told as a flashback. Eddie is an interesting and flawed character. Very much in the model of a Noir Private Investigator. Highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good mystery.
