About the Author:

Bruce Alexander is the pseudonym for a well-known author of fiction and non-fiction. The previous books in this series are Blind Justice, Murder in Grub Street (Named by The New York Times Book Review as a Notable Book in 1995), Watery Grave, Person or Persons Unknown (named by the Chicago Tribune as one of the best novels of 1997), Jack, Knave and Fool, and Death of a Colonial.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Sir John Fielding, co-founder with his late half-brother Henry (author of Tom Jones) of the Bow Street Runners, has been dead for 200 years, but he's just now getting his first starring role in a detective story. Here, in 1768, the blind magistrate rescues orphaned printer's apprentice Jeremy Proctor from a trumped-up robbery charge just in time to take Jeremy along as his youthful Watson while he investigates the apparent suicide of Lord Richard Goodhope, shot inside a locked library. Surprises abound, even for the seasoned Sir John: Lord Goodhope, who was on distant terms with his wife, died of poison, not his gunshot; the library is not quite so hermetically sealed as it appears; notorious gambler Black Jack Bilbo claims to hold Goodhope's markers for œ12,000; one of his footmen left Goodhope's employ very recently, only to turn up in quite another connection. Even Mary Deemey, the invincibly English dressmaker who supplied widow's weeds to Goodhope's current actress companion, is masquerading as one Mlle. Claudette. But though he constantly has to ask Jeremy to describe things and places and people for him, nothing fools Sir John, and his clever identification of a suspect sets the stage for an old-fashioned denouement in the Goodhope library. Pseudonymous Alexander's debut wraps a competent mystery in a historical narrative of vivacity and charm. The final paragraph promises a sequel, perhaps a series. -- Copyright ©1994, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.

Descrizione libro Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 1995. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Reissue. Language: English . Brand New Book. Blind Justice marks the debut of a delightful mystery series featuring the legendary eighteenth-century London judge Sir John Fielding. In eighteenth-century England, Fielding was famed not only as a co-founder (with his half brother, the novelist Henry Fielding) of London s first police force, the Bow Street Runners, but as a magistrate of keen intellect, fairness - and uncommon detective ability. When a crime was committed, he often took it upon himself to solve it. What made this all the more remarkable was that he was blind. Blind Justice introduces one of the most memorable mystery heroes in years, as, accompanied by his eyes (and the series narrator), thirteen-year-old Jeremy Proctor, Fielding probes into every stratum of London society in pursuit of the truth. In this case, the truth has to do with the death of a lord, whose suicide soon begins to look like something very different indeed. A widow with no tears, a room with no exit, a servant with no past, a corpse with clean hands - these are but a few of the elements that will lead Fielding into a dark labyrinth of deception, greed and murder.a labyrinth, he will find, with a very unusual monster at its center.
