Praise

Praise for The Price of Murder

“Alexander’s got it all: a heroic central figure, a setting that both fascinates and appalls, and a gift for concocting plots that weave in and out of social classes. Also, unlike many writers in this genre, who lay on historical details with a trowel, Alexander brings Georgian England alive with facts fitting the acting. Alexander’s detective is a real-life one…This fact-based device gives the novels a sort of Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin feel.”—Booklist (starred review)

“Enjoyable.”—Publishers Weekly

“An outstanding historical.”—Library Journal

More Praise for the Sir John Fielding Mysteries

“Bruce Alexander has mastered the uncommon knack of deftly capturing a period-perfect historical time without endangering the liveliness of the story with excessive detail.”—Los Angeles Times

“History has a thrilling way of hitting home in Bruce Alexander’s Georgian mysteries.”—The New York Times

“Charles Dickens and Arthur Conan Doyle must be beaming down from literary heaven at Bruce Alexander’s splendid series. [His] eye for period detail is sharp and subtle; he bring historic England back to life in layers.”—Chicago Tribune
