NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER The #1 New York Times bestselling author Diana Gabaldon weaves a dazzling tale of history, intrigue, and suspense in this first novel featuring one of her most popular characters from the Outlander saga: Lord John Grey. The year is 1757. On a clear morning in mid-June, Lord John Grey emerges from London’s Beefsteak Club, his mind in turmoil. A nobleman and a high-ranking officer in His Majesty’s army, Grey has just witnessed something shocking. But his efforts to avoid a scandal that might destroy his family are interrupted by something still more urgent: The Crown appoints him to investigate the brutal murder of a comrade-in-arms who may have been a traitor. Obliged to pursue two inquiries at once, Major Grey finds himself ensnared in a web of treachery and betrayal that touches every stratum of English society—and threatens all he holds dear.

I can't believe I forgot about my precious Tom Byrd, the most put-upon footman in all of London. Hee! Lord John does have a tendency to destroy his suits beyond repair, but Tom ...
I really am liking LJG. I liked him in the Outlander books, and I wanted to know more. He's a great guy, and he's always figuring out leads on mysteries and things like a detective of some sort. I love when he thinks of JAMMF. It endears him more because I too love Jamie and can't have him. I'm...
It's not Davina Porter, but a return to Outlander series (well, side series) audiobooks. The Lord John series grew out of Diana Gabaldon writing a novella for an anthology and wanting to write something with a character in the Outlander series, but not something that would interfere with the main...
I've wanted to read these since Lord John Grey first appears in Voyager, which is book three of Gabaldon's Outlander series. It took a while to get into. My attention was too divided at first to really get into the book, but the action picked up and I couldn't put it down! I was a little leery of...
