About The Book
‘Blind Justice’, the first novel featuring legendary eighteenth-century London judge Sir John Fielding, was one of the most highly acclaimed mystery debuts of 1994. ‘Murder in Grub Street’, the second novel, was named by The New York Times Book Review as one of the Notable Books of 1995 in crime fiction. Now Fielding returns in his most baffling case yet.
John Fielding was famous not only as co-founder of London’s first police force, the Bow Street Runners, but also 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.
In ‘Watery Grave’. accompanied by his “eyes” (and the series’ narrator), young Jeremy Proctor, Fielding encounters a case that hits close to home, as a stepson returns from the high seas with tales of typhoons and a captain overboard. Was it an accident, or was it murder? Fielding is asked to investigate, but discovers considerably more than he’d bargained for — including some secrets that might better have been left at the bottom of a watery grave.
Filled with the authentic sights and sounds and atmosphere of the times, and with a supremely colorful and varied cast of characters, ‘Watery Grave’ is in every way a delight to read.
