Blind Justice, by Bruce Alexander, AKA Bruce Cook. A. Borrowed from National Library Service for the Blind.

This is, as I understand it, the first of the Sir John Fielding books involving a blind magistrate in 19th century London. I have hesitated to read these because I’m usually not please with what authors do with blind characters, but these actually do seem to be quite good. In this one Sir Fielding meets Jeremy Proctor, a 13-year-old boy who is an orphan and homeless because he is lured into a scam by thieves. Fielding dismisses the charges against him and takes him into his own home. Jeremy is a big help because he’s a very good observer for the blind magistrate. I hope we see Jeremy in more books.
