If you miss strong heroines and veteran warriors like Brick in Ken Lizzi' "Thick as Thieves," you're in for a treat: more where that came from! Hello, "Boss." Welcome to my library!

Lizzi's characters are gritty and real, decent and honest, even if they're sometimes in need of a social filter, and especially if everyone keeps calling them a^^hole. Falchion, whose name comes from a medieval weapon, lives up to all of a Lizzi fan's expectations. He's flawed, yes, but he has principles. Falchion is

Too many smart people

I liked it. The story moves well. There is action, a bit of rough comedy, and the hero is suitably heroic at need.

My difficulty is that there were woo many people who reasoned logically and not enough who followed their passions. Having a few who think practically makes it easier to drive the story, but they need to have more fools as foils. While there were idiots, they weren’t loud about it. Even the crazy character (Mad Hazlet?) acted rationally. It felt too safe.
