More of a mystery than I remembered. It's a shame this series is out of print: plenty of period color - and guns! - and engaging characters. Blackstone's Fancy, the boxing one, should be first movie; Russell Crowe would make a fine Blackie, with Robert Downey jr as sidekick Lawler.

Sometimes I think our first impression of a book, the cover and the time we see it, forms much of our impression of it. I first saw Blackstone when I was on a trip with my older brother. I wanted to buy the book, but I was short of cash. I also new he wouldn't lend me the $$ to buy it. The image of a the man all in black, cloak, hat, the Bow Street Runners, and flintlock pistol always stayed in my head.

Upon finding a copy of this out of print book, and recalling my first impression, I bought it.
