Traitor’s Blade by Sebastien de Castell (Sebastien de Castell)
As members of the legendary Greatcoats, Falcio, Kest, and Brasti once brought justice to a troubled kingdom with their knowledge of the king’s laws and their skills with a blade. But now the king is dead, the Greatcoats have been disbanded, and a royal conspiracy is about to unfold in the most corrupt city in the world that could mean the ruin of everything Falcio, Kest and Brasti have fought for. If the trio want to unwind the conspiracy, save the innocents and reunite the Greatcoats, they’ll have to do it with nothing but the tattered leather coats on their backs and the swords in their hands, because these days every noble is a tyrant, every knight is a thug and the only thing you can really trust is a traitor’s blade. Falcio Val Mond and fellow magistrates Kest and Brasti have been reduced to working as bodyguards for a nobleman who refuses to pay them. Things could be worse – their employer could be lying dead on the floor while the three of them are forced to watch as the killer plants evidence framing them for the murder. Oh wait, that’s exactly what’s happening . . .
