Greatcoats #1: Traitor's Blade
The King is dead, and the Greatcoats have been disbanded. But things could be worse for Falcio, Kest, and Brasti - their employer could be lying dead on the floor while they are forced to watch the killer plant evidence framing them for the murder. Oh wait, that's exactly what's happening. A conspiracy is unfolding in the most corrupt city in the world. It began with the overthrow of an idealistic young king, and will end with the death of an orphaned girl. If the trio want to foil the conspiracy, save the girl, and reunite the Greatcoats, they'll have to do it with nothing but the tattered coats on their backs and the swords in their hands.
