I'm reading a mystery series featuring Sir John Fielding - I picked quite a few of the series up for £1 each in a second hand book shop in Hay! Blind Justice is the first book - as Sir John was blind. He was the half brother of Henry Fielding who wrote Tom Jones.

This was my first historical fiction story. I wasn't planning on reading it at first because I knew historical fiction wasn't my thing but I just kept hearing how great it was and how it kept bringing so many people to tears and that even if you don't like historical fiction you will love this book! So I decided to give it a try and I LOVED it. I think it should be required that everyone read this book, that's how good it was! This was the book that got me into historical fiction.
