A final gift from Bruce Alexander: a new book in his acclaimed mystery series about blind eighteenth-century London judge Sir John Fielding

Beloved by legions of fans and a staple of best-of-the-year book lists, the Fielding mysteries thrill readers with a pitch-perfect fusion of vivid characterizations, evocative atmosphere, and riveting plotlines. And now, for all those fans, here is one more.

In Rules of Engagement, Sir John and Jeremy are confronted with a series of bizarre deaths on the streets of Georgian London, in a mystery that tests even Sir John's legendary skills of deduction. When Lord Lammermoor, a close personal friend of the Lord Chief Justice, plunges to his death from the heights of Westminster Bridge in front of a dozen witnesses, suicide is ruled as the most likely cause of death. But Lammermoor's fatal leap coincides with the arrival of Dr. Goldsworthy, a student of the famous Dr. Anton Mesmer and his research in animal magnetism. Sir John's suspicions grow when it is discovered that Goldsworthy's patron in London is none other than the beautiful and austere Lady Lammermoor. Meanwhile, Jeremy's sleuthing uncovers a web of intrigue within the Lammermoor family, and the deeper he investigates, the more suspects he discovers who stand to gain from Lammermoor's death. Filled with Alexander's richly textured depictions of eighteenth-century London, and with a vibrant cast of characters "as vivid and sharp-witted as a Hogarth sketch" (The Seattle Times), Rules of Engagement is the brilliant conclusion to a splendid series.
