AN EXPERIMENT IN TREASON – G+
Alexander, Bruce – 9th in series
Sir John Fielding, a blind, 18th-century London judge, and his orphan accomplice, Jeremy, get mixed up in pre-Revolutionary War intrigue when a packet of incendiary letters is stolen from the London residence of a prominent official, and turns up in the colony of Massachusetts. Why are the contents so contro-versial? Why has a suspect in the theft turned up dead? And what should Sir John do about his feeling that Benjamin Franklin himself is somehow complicit?
The books in this series are so complete; well-developed characters about one cares, well-researched history, excellent sense of place, wonderful voice, and a good mystery besides. These are always a pleasure to read.
