Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Alexander is wonderful at catching the pungent flavor of this grandly messy emerging world capitol." (Washington Post)

"Historical fiction done this entertainingly is as close to time travel as we're likely to get." (Newsday)

A gang of vicious criminals-rumored to be all black men-has London in an uproar. But the blind Sir John Fielding is on the case to ensure that no hasty conclusions are made. And when the pieces come together, he and his young protégé, Jeremy Proctor, learn that black and white are never as simple as they seem.

Synopsis:

A gang of criminals is terrorizing London with robbery and murder. In a time when slavery is still practiced in the colonies, there is but one clue to the identity of this group: they are all black men. Blind judge Sir John Fielding is on the case. When the pieces come together, Fielding and his protege, Jeremy Proctor, learn that black and white are never as simple as they seem.
