Overview
"Outstanding."--Library Journal

When the body of a young girl is pulled from the Thames, blind magistrate Sir John Fielding's investigation leads his protege, Jeremy Proctor, into the notorious Seven Dials section of London. There the sordid inclinations of both the working class and aristocracy may be found--and there, Jeremy learns that the girl's mother has disappeared near the racetrack. As he delves further into the mystery, he will begin to realize just how high the stakes are, and--when an acquaintance of his own suddenly vanishes--just how terribly steep the odds really are.

"I've already invoked the spirits of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Charles Dickens to describe the pleasures of Bruce Alexander's wonderful series...Now it's time to add Sir John Fielding's] illustrious brother, novelist Henry Fielding, to that list of noble begetters."--Chicago Tribune

"Alexander balances darker narrative colors and a deeper look at series characters with a satisfying mystery and rich period authenticity."--Kirkus Reviews
