    Set in boisterous, rebellious Boston on the eve of the American Revolution, Blindspot ingeniously weaves together the fictional stories of Stewart Jameson, a Scottish portrait painter and notorious libertine, and Fanny Easton, a fallen woman from one of Boston's most powerful families who disguises herself as a boy to become Jameson's defiant and seductive apprentice. Together with an African-born doctor, they investigate the death of the famous revolutionary leader Samuel Bradstreet.

    This is great historical fiction, evoking Boston on the brink of revolt through plot and carefully wrought detail while also telling a well-plotted tale. John Lee is always a pleasure to listen to as well.

    Connie's mother asks her to sell an abandoned house once owned by her grandmother in Salem, Mass. Relunctantly, Connie moves to the small town and inhabits the crumbling, ancient house, trying to restore it to a semblance of order. Curious things start to happen when Connie finds the name "Deliverance Dane" on a yellowed scrap of paper and begins to have visions of a long ago woman condemned for practicing "physick," or herbal healing, on her neighbors in 1690s Salem.

    Overall

    This is the first intelligent historical thriller I've encountered since The Historian. I couldn't stop listening. My one qualm was with the narrator, who, like so many other narrators and actors, seems to think that everyone from Massachusetts sounds like a Kennedy or even better, like they are from Maine. While this annoyed me, it wasn't enough to keep me from thoroughly enjoying the story.
