Synopsis: Suspicion and fear are running high in London, as a gang of expert criminals terrorizes the town in a spree of robbery and murder. And in a time when slavery is still practiced in the colonies, there is but one peculiar clue to the identity of this group: The robbers are all black men.

The blind judge Sir John Fielding is on the case to ensure that the guilty are punished and that no hasty conclusions are made. But when Sir John takes a bullet to the shoulder, his young protégé, Jeremy Proctor, must lead this most delicate investigation under his bedridden counsel. And when Jeremy begins to turn over stones, he and Sir John come to find that black and white are never as simple as they seem....

“Lively storytelling...accurate period details...Alexander offers food for thought as well as first class entertainment.”—Publisher’s Weekly

“Alexander is wonderful at catching the pungent flavor of this grandly messy emerging world capital.”—The Washington Post

Review: Sir John Fielding, a blind 18th-century London judge, is back in his Bow Street offices along with his young assistant Jeremy in this seventh installment in Bruce Alexander's well-crafted, intricately plotted series. When a crime spree in a well-to-do neighborhood not far from Sir John's home turns from robbery to murder, and witnesses identify the perpetrators as black men, the focus shifts from police work to prejudice. When the criminals are ultimately revealed to be white men in blackface, Jeremy and Sir John must look deeper into the hearts and minds of their neighbors to discover the real motive for the attacks and cast off their own biases before solving the crime. Alexander draws an accurate picture of racial hypocrisy in an era when slavery, though banned in England, was permitted in its colonies. He gets all the period details right, and his two sleuths get more interesting with every new outing in this historical series. --Jane Adams
