Overview

The crime appeared as easily solved as it was wicked. A Grub Street printer, his family, and two apprentices brutally murdered in their sleep. A locked building. And at the scene, a raving mad poet brandishing a bloody axe. Surely the culprit had been found, and justice would be swift and severe.

But to Sir John Fielding, justice was more than finding a culprit-it was finding the truth. Aided by thirteen-year-old Jeremy Proctor, Fielding decided to investigate further. And the truth behind the Grub Street massacre was more evil-and more deadly-than the dastardly crime itself.

I jumped right into this book after Blind Justice and enjoyed it just as much. It's not too hard to figure out the mystery, but following the lives of the people is what I enjoyed the most. The series is very creative with a bit of action, but mostly a gentle story that you'd like while settling down for the evening.
