Blind Justice by Bruce Alexander

This is the first and only Sir John Fielding mystery I've read and I thought it was pretty good. A friend of mine described it as a "Swimming pool book" and I think that's pretty accurate. 

I enjoyed snippets of life and jurisprudence in London during the 1760s and the 13-year-old who narrates the novel is a surprisingly well-developed character. Although we witness the slow, inevitable death of Sir John's wife, we don't get to know him all that well in the first book and I think that's what going to keep me reading this series.
