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.

4.0 Lord John and the Private Matter (Lord John Grey #1) (Audiobook)
I'm finally getting a chance to reread this series along with Voyager, and it's proving as fun as the first time around. 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 ...

4.0 Lord John and the Private Matter
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...

4.5 Lord John and the Private Matter
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...

4.5 Lord John and the Private Matter [Diana Gabaldon]
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...
