Lord John is a super sleuth always on the job figuring out a mystery. Nice reads for those who liked him in the Outlander series.3.5 stars

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...

I do like Lord John, and I think he works well in novella format. Each of these tales has at least some nominal paranormal frame of reference. I'm not sure I would call them mysteries, however. The second story is my favorite. It was well developed, and Diana's wit and humor is allowed to shine. The...

Narrator is great. This is 3 short stories. I liked the 1st and 3rd the best. I had thought the 3rd sounded/read familiar but it's end was a surprise.
