This is another excellent Eddie LaCrosse novel. Eddie is a sword jockey or fantasy appropriate private eye type of hero except no cars and no guns. Eddie is forced to face love threatened, pre-conceived notions shattered and religious fanaticism in this novel.
Alex Bledsoe has crafted Eddie LaCrosse as a foible filled human. He has idiosyncrasies, aches and pains just like many of us. He is like an aging athlete his skill set has improved dramatically but his body is declining.
Eddie is forced to face some more personal demons in this book. In addition he has to come to terms with whether he is capable of love or not.
Alex does not pull punches, some characters don’t survive and some who you think Eddie should put down, do survive. Overall a well crafted story.
BTW Alex Bledsoe recently suffered a heart attack and says he is well on the way to recovery. If you are so inclined, it wouldn’t hurt to go to his web site or facebook page and give him your good wishes.
I highly recommend the book.
