The Sword-Edged Blonde (Book #24)

The Sword-Edged Blonde (Alex Bledsoe, 2007) is a genre-bender--fantasy crossed with noir whodunnit. It's a clever combination, and I think it works, though I liked the book rather than loving it.

Having established a precedent of griping when I dislike a cover, I can't let this one go by without comment. Obviously the publisher was going for a sort of campy retro look, but I think they could've gotten that effect across more attractively.
