He had founded the Bow Street Runners, a police force that had reduced nighttime crime in London. He was as just as any magistrate in England. And Sir John was universally renowned for his skills as a detective. Most impressively, he has accomplished all this without the sense of sight.
But there was nothing lacking in his sense of justice, and after clearing Jeremy of the charges, Sir Johnand his new helper began a career of solving some of London's most wicked crimes...
