Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"Lively characters, vivid incidents, clever plotting and a colorful setting make for a robust series kickoff." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"The narrator's wit, curiosity, and youthful energy make it easy for YAs to identify with him." School Library Journal

Review:

"The mystery element is not overly complicated, but the novel offers much to treasure: wonderful use of language, a rich cast of characters, and an intoxicating evocation of time and place." Booklist

Synopsis:

When 13-year-old Jeremy Proctor is arrested for a crime he did not commit, he is saved by the wisdom and compassion of Sir John Fielding. The boy rewards Fielding by becoming his "eyes," and the two begin a career of solving some of London's most wicked games.

About the Author

Bruce Alexander was the pseudonym for Bruce Cook, the well-known author of numerous works of fiction and nonfiction. When Alexander died in late 2003, he had completed most of Rules of Engagement, leaving behind notes on how the remainder of the story was to unfold. The novel has been completed by John Shannon and Alexander's wife, Judith Aller. Shannon himself is the author of four novels as well as six books in the highly praised Jack Liffey mystery series, most recently Terminal Island.

Looking for something different to read, I chanced upon this series of books. While not "heavy reading" they are very interesting; they give informative glimpses into history, early forensics, basic human character.....all wrapped together in a nice package. After reading the first book, I just had to find out what happened to the main characters. It's nice to find a series of books where the characters are allowed to grow and show human failings along with their more sterling traits. I do hope there will be at least one more to wrap up the series.
