What a fun book with a different twist of having the book's observer being its 13 yr old protagonist. I looked for more of Alexander's books but didn't find any more in the Sir John Fielding series except in other formats that I don't use (large print, download). Highly recommend it!

The story uses the locked door mystery problem and the "perhaps you are wondering why I have called you all here" method of proving the detectives theory of how it was done and why. Also the young Jeremy Proctor acts as a sort of Archie Goodwin to Sir John Fielding's Nero Wolfe. Jeremy runs errands, does housework, and makes observations about things that the blind Fielding cannot see. Since this is the first book in a series, Jeremy's history and that of Fielding are given to us in depth, so as to set the scene for upcoming books. The reader cares about the main characters. The tone is definitely of the period and well written. I am looking forward to reading the whole series.

Great book! Long but interesting read with lots of period details and well developed characters.
Recommended by a neighbor and we are going to read them all. Author died about 2004.
