Bruce Alexander dies 

As reported at the Deadly Pleasures website, Bruce Cook, aka Bruce Alexander, author of many historical mysteries, including the John Fielding series, died yesterday at a Los Angeles area hospital at the age of 71. He had suffered a stroke and never regained consciousness. He will most certainly be missed, especially by historical mystery lovers. Booklist deemed the Fielding series, the most recent entry being THE PRICE OF MURDER, released last month, "... the best historical mystery series around."
