Book cover

In Blind Policy, George Manville Fenn crafts a thrilling tale filled with suspense, mystery, and complex characters. The story follows the life of Jim Brown, a courageous and resourceful young man who finds himself entangled in a web of deceit and treachery.

One of the remarkable aspects of this book is Fenn's ability to create a vivid and immersive world. The streets of London during the late 19th century come alive with every page, allowing readers to feel as if they are walking alongside Jim, experiencing the hustle and bustle of the city. Fenn's attention to detail is exceptional, from the description of the narrow alleys to the smoke-filled pubs, painting a realistic picture of the era.

The narrative itself is filled with unexpected twists and turns, keeping readers on the edge of their seats. As Jim tries to unravel the mysteries surrounding a series of robberies, he is confronted with numerous obstacles and adversaries.

Furthermore, Fenn delves into themes of justice, loyalty, and the divide between the rich and the poor. Through Jim's encounters with various social classes, the author raises questions about the fairness of society and the consequences of blind policy, provoking thought and reflection.

While Blind Policy is primarily a gripping mystery, it also offers insightful commentary on the human condition. Fenn explores the depths of human nature, showcasing both the worst and best aspects of individuals. Complex characters such as Jim's cunning friend, Tom Bow Street, and the enigmatic Lizzie Craven add layers to the story, leaving readers guessing their true motivations until the very end.

The only criticism that can be drawn relates to the pacing of the novel. At times, the plot seems to drag, elongating certain scenes unnecessarily. However, this minor flaw does not overshadow the overall quality of the book.

In conclusion, Blind Policy is a captivating read that seamlessly weaves together history, mystery, and intrigue. Fenn's masterful storytelling and attention to detail transport readers to a different time and place, where they can lose themselves in the vivid world he has created. With its compelling characters and an enthralling plot, this book is sure to captivate fans of historical fiction, mystery, and adventure alike.

"Yes, you can, old lady. Come, try and stop it. You'll make Bel cry too."

"I wish she would, Fred, and repent before it's too late."
