Bending the ear of none other than Dr Samuel Johnson, it soon becomes apparent to Fielding that the accused answers to three names and identities - John Clayton, a sensitive nature poet who would tremble at the mere sight of blood- Eusebius, who believes that taking of anothers life is the most unreasonable of human acts- and Petrus, a servant of the passions.As each alter ego protests the innocence of the others, the case is further complicated by the strange religious sect who have come from out of nowhere to run amok in Covent Garden ...Mr Alexander works in a vigorous style that captures with gusto the lusty spirit of the era.
