Blind Justice : A Sir John Fielding Mystery - 94 edition

Blind Justice : A Sir John Fielding Mystery (ISBN10: 0425150070; ISBN13: 9780425150078)
ISBN13: 978-0425150078
ISBN10: 0425150070

Summary: 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 s
olve 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.
