I was close to finishing a book, yesterday, so I went ahead and did, setting aside the homework assignment. The book was The Color of Death, a Sir John Fielding mystery novel, set in London before the Revolutionary War. Pretty good; the characters in this series are definitely growing, and some have left. It deals with a series of robberies of the rich by a group of black raiders, which is complicated by murders. It touches on the topic of slavery in British colonies, but in the end it was decades later before it was finally abolished in real history. I think the whole series, that I've read so far, is worth looking at.
