Mystery & Suspense • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2002

John Fielding, a great blind magistrate in the English court in 1761, becomes embroiled in an investigation of murder, along with his dear friend John Rawlings, an apothecary. Fielding and his acquaintance George Goward have been knighted, but Goward falls down the stairs and dies just after the ceremony. As it turns out, every suspect has a motive to kill Goward. Michael Tudor Barnes reads this slowly evolving mystery, bringing the characters to life while they travel back and forth from London to Kensington to Islington by horse-drawn carriage. Rawlings and Fielding work out the details and uncover deeply held secrets while Barnes brings the time period and professional British class to the fore.
