Twenty years ago, a barmaid fell for a young sailor who turned pirate to make his fortune. But what became of Black Edward Tew is mystery - that has just fallen into the lap of freelance sword jockey Eddie LaCrosse. For years, Eddie's kept his office above Angelina's tavern, so when Angelina herself asks him to find out what happened to the pirate who stole her heart, he can't say no. Some say Black Edward and his ship, The Bloody Angel, went to bottom of the sea. Others say he rules a wealthy, secret pirate kingdom. A few believe he still sails under a ghostly flag with a crew of the damned.

Review quote

Action-packed and witty the lead's sardonic narrative voice will amply entertain readers. "Publishers Weekly on Wake of the Bloody Angel" Bledsoe skillfully combines humor, action, deduction, and emotion to make the material fresh and engaging for fans of both fantasy and noir. "Publishers Weekly, starred review on Dark Jenny" Try suggesting this to fans of Jim Butcher's Dresden Files. "Booklist, Starred Review on Dark Jenny" [A] well-crafted gem of a tale. "Library Journal on the Sword-Edged Blonde" An entertaining, well-crafted melding of fantasy and hard-boiled detective fiction. "Kirkus Reviews on Burn Me Deadly" Superb. "RT Book Reviews on Burn Me Deadly" Aficionados of tough-guy mysteries will find much to enjoy, and fantasy fans will appreciate the swordplay and the fully realized medieval society Bledsoe has constructed. Best of all, it's not necessary to have read the first installment to enjoy this one. "Kirkus Reviews on Burn Me Deadly""
