I read the two first Eddie LaCrosse novels this year and loved them both (The Sword-Edged Blonde - Burn Me Deadly reviews). The third book in the series, Dark Jenny is set for release on April 2011. I looked for a blurb or some cover art recently but alas found none until today, when I received the Tor Winter 2011 catalog. The cover is not in the same style as the first two books and I hope to be able to post the real deal soon(UPDATE : Tor sent me the real cover).
As for the blurb, I can only say that it sounds like the same good old Eddie and that's what I'm looking for in a La Crosse novel! Here you go :
Freelance Sword Jockey Eddie LaCrosse is in the wrong place at the wrong time while conducting an undercover investigation on the island kingdom of Grand Bruan. When a poisoned apple kills a member of the queen’s personal guard, Eddie becomes the prime suspect in the murder. He must do some fast talking to keep his head attached to his shoulders. Trying to clear his name and find the real killer, Eddie becomes embroiled in a nasty political scandal. Someone is trying to ruin Queen Jennifer, and they don’t care who they kill along the way..
The more Eddie digs, the more twisted the lies become, until Eddie finds himself caught between two opposing armies. The fate of the entire kingdom lies in his hands.
Murder, betrayal, and magic—just another day on the job for Sword Jockey Eddie LaCrosse
