Diana Gabaldon, the New York Times bestselling author of Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade and the wildly popular Outlander novels, delivers three tales of war, intrigue, and espionage that feature one of her most popular characters: Lord John Grey. In the heart of the eighteenth century, here are haunted soldiers . . . lusty princesses . . . ghostly apparitions . . . dark family secrets. And here Lord John will face enemies who come in the guise of friends, memories in the shape of a fiery-haired Scot named James Fraser, and allies who have the power to destroy him with a single blow. . . .In Lord John and the Hellfire Club, Lord John glimpses a stranger in the doorway of a gentlemen's club—and is stirred by a desperate entreaty to meet in private. The rendezvous forestalled by a sudden murder, Lord John will wade into a maze of political treachery and a dangerous, debauched underground society. . . . In Lord John and the Succubus, English soldiers fighting in Prussia are rattled by the nocturnal visitations of a deadly woman who sucks life and soul from a man. Called to investigate the night-hag, Lord John finds a murdered soldier and a treacherous Gypsy, and comes to the stark realization that among the spirits that haunt men, none frighten more than the specters conjured by the heart. . . . In Lord John and the Haunted Soldier, Lord John is thrust into the deadly case of an exploding battlefield cannon. Wounded in the same battle, Lord John is called to tesify and soon confronts his own ghost—and the shattering prospect that a traitor is among the ranks of His Majesty's armed forces.Capturing the lonely, tormented, and courageous career of a man who fights for his crown, his honor, and his own secrets, Diana Gabaldon delivers breathtaking human drama. And in tales seething with desire, madness, and political intrigue, Gabaldon once again proves that she can bring history to life in a way few novelists ever have.

4.0 Lord John and the Hand of Devils [Diana Gabaldon]
This is really a collection of three short stories set in this world. I really liked the author's warning at the start: this is not a book about Jaime and Claire. It just amused me for some reason. The orignal plan for my reading of this book was to read the first story, Lord John and the Hellfi...

Lord John and the Hand of the Devils is one short story and two novellas. My biggest question after reading this: why not publish all the Lord John stories in order? I know they can be read out of order, but it makes more sense when you read them in order because of the relationships that develop am...

Lord John and the Hand of Devils is a collection of three short stories featuring Lord John. I did enjoy how they each had a supernatural mystery to them that was less supernatural then it seemed. Lord John and the Hellfire Club is more of a slice of life story than a true mystery, it's quite short ...
