The Black Hawk by Joanna Bourne

304 pages

I picked up this book as a mindless read -- the title, cover and author's name seemed to point to a bodice-ripper type tale.

Instead, this book turned out to be a historical mystery/thriller type.  Don't get me wrong -- there are a couple of risque scenes of but they are relatively tame.  The main topic of the book is trying to find a murderer in the time of Napolean. 

I found the plot surprisingly intriguing.  And they really need to change the cover (at the very least) in order to have a wider readership.
