Sword-jockey Eddie LaCrosse agrees to find a missing princess, but discovers more than he expected. Once he finds her, he must decide whether to follow his own code or gain a large reward. Thus begins Alex Bledsoe's tale of Eddie's adventures in the Sword-Edged Blonde. Before Eddie notifies the king of his decision, another king's agent approaches him. His old friend and best buddy faces a dilemma. His beautiful queen is accused of killing and eating her infant son. He asks Eddie to find the truth, but to do so Eddie must relive his past, accept his failures, and forgive himself and others.

From official release/information:

Product Description: It should have been a case like any other: a missing princess, a king willing to pay in gold for her return. But before he realizes it, sword jockey Eddie LaCrosse is swept up in a web of mystery and deceit involving a brutally murdered royal heir, a queen accused of an unspeakable crime, and the tragic past he thought he'd left behind.

In order to uncover the answers he seeks, Eddie must delve into the dark underbelly of society while digging deep into his own private history, drawing past and present together. Vast conspiracies, women both beautiful and deadly, and a centuries-old revenge scheme are only a few of the pieces in a lethal puzzle.
