Synopsis

Diana Gabaldon, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Outlander series, delivers captivating tales of history, intrigue, and suspense that feature one of her most popular characters: Lord John Grey. This thrilling eBook collection—featuring three novels and one collection of novellas—follows Lord John as he defends his country, ferrets out spies, and unravels a haunting family mystery.
 
LORD JOHN AND THE PRIVATE MATTER
 
“Packed with vivid description and detail . . . transports readers to eighteenth-century London.”—BookPage
 
London, 1757. Lord John Grey, a nobleman and a high-ranking officer in His Majesty’s army, has just witnessed something shocking. But his efforts to avoid a scandal are interrupted when the Crown appoints him to investigate the brutal murder of a comrade-in-arms. Obliged to pursue two inquiries at once, Major Grey finds himself ensnared in a web of betrayal that touches every stratum of English society—and threatens all he holds dear.
 
LORD JOHN AND THE HAND OF DEVILS
A Collection of Novellas
 
“Gabaldon’s strengths are on full display.”—Kirkus Reviews
 
In Lord John and the Hellfire Club, Lord John glimpses a stranger at a gentleman’s club—and is drawn into a maze of political treachery and a dangerous underground society. In Lord John and the Succubus, English soldiers in combat are rattled by a lethal creature that appears at night, and Lord John is called to investigate. In Lord John and the Haunted Soldier, Lord John is thrust into a baffling case that forces him to confront the prospect that a traitor is among the ranks of His Majesty’s armed forces.
 
LORD JOHN AND THE BROTHERHOOD OF THE BLADE
 
“First-rate . . . [Gabaldon’s] writing is always vivid and often lyrical.”—The Washington Post
 
It’s been seventeen years since Lord John’s father was found dead, accusations of his role as a Jacobite agent staining the family’s name. Now, Lord John’s brother has mysteriously received a page of their father’s lost diary, convincing John that someone knows the Greys’ secrets. So he turns to the only man he can trust: the Scottish Jacobite Jamie Fraser. But when Jamie yields the missing piece of an astounding puzzle, Lord John must decide whether his family’s honor is worth his life.
 
THE SCOTTISH PRISONER
 
“Engrossing . . . masterfully paced, with exciting plot twists, swift reversals, and robust characterizations.”—The Globe and Mail
 
London, 1760. Paroled prisoner Jamie Fraser has sworn off politics, fighting, and war. Until Lord John Grey shows up with documents that expose a damning case of corruption against a British officer. But they also hint at a more insidious danger. Soon Lord John and Jamie are companions on the road to Ireland, a country whose dark castles hold dreadful secrets, and whose bogs hide the bones of the dead.

I would have reviewed these stories separately, but they all would have gotten 5 stars anyway... Okay so maybe there were a couple scenes I had to look behind me and make sure no prudes were reading over my shoulder cause I'm SURE the color of my face spoke volumes to what I was reading... Yikes! But if Anne Rice can and write about Lestat turning his mom and them becoming lovers... Then Mrs Gabaldon please continue depicting the struggles of emotions this man goes through... Like a champion by the way! I know these stories are set so far in the past I can't even pretend I can relate to his needs of concealment, but in a way I'm sure there are more parallels to present challenges of the gay community than the average American would dare to admit... I am all for more John Grey and thank you for giving such a real character to an audience who may not be ready for it :) the more expectations of "average readers" are not met the more "above average readers" will rally to the cause of excellent literature. I for one would never ask you to stop shocking me!
