This book is 5th in Alexander's series that featuring Sir John Fielding, the blind judge who founded the Bow Street Runners (forerunners of London's Police). "Death of a Colonial" shows the reader how contemporary Britain viewed the American colonies 50 years before the Revolution: a wild, savage land that converts even civilized men to 4/5(49).   Main characters: Sir John Fielding, the blind magistrate of Bow Street and Jeremy Proctor, his protégé Well developed characters, a well done depiction of of the culture and thought of the period.

  THE MASTERS OF BOW STREET BY JOHN CREASEY, profiles in fiction the Bow Street Runners,a group of men who are fighting for the innocents of crime in 18th and 19th century London. These men believe in the law and are trying to tame . Giving a nod to the Bow Street Police Office in London, Charlton’s writing is strong, bringing Regency London to life. Lavender and Woods are not just Bow Street detectives, they have become unique and appealing characters we know and love. I can’t help but champ at the bit for another book in the series/5().

This Earl of Mine (Bow Street Bachelors #1) is a historical romance story of two individuals who engage in a thrilling adventure and find love in the process. Ms. Georgiana Caversteed is at her wits end and wants to chase off a distant relative who wants to compromise her and take her fortune/5(). June Regency-era London comes vividly to life in T. F. Banks's darkly atmospheric mystery. Against this enthralling backdrop - when Napoleon, Wellington, and Lord Byron ruled the world stage - and featuring a lively cast of rabble-rousers and miscreants, constables and aristocrats, The Thief-Taker weaves an unforgettable tale of jealousy, revenge, and inconsolable love.
