This title also appears as a novella in the collection “Lord John and the Hand of Devils.”
New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon, beloved for her immensely popular Outlander series, crafted this fast-paced tale of intrigue when asked to contribute to an anthology honoring the late, great Ellis Peters. Outlander supporting player Lord John Grey investigates the death of a red-haired man only to become mixed up in the affairs of Sir Francis Dashwood and his notorious Hellfire Club. And as Lord John digs further, his life becomes threatened.

The beginning of a new series with Lord John as the main character. A good story with an excellent narrator.
Of course! I tell my friends who love the Outlander series that they need to read/listen to this Lord John series so they can get all of the back stories that add so much to the main series. I also tell my friends to listen to the books for a fuller experience.
Goodness, yes! All of the books in these series have me caught up.
His voice is perfect for these characters and brought them to life. I respond much better and recall more when I hear something than if I try to read it, where I get too distracted and end up stopping.
Nothing extreme- just my usual excitement
What a wonderful way to bridge the stories throughout Outlander and highlight the relationship of Lord John with Jamie Fraser.
It's just so hard to switch from the outlander series to a new narrator and get into it. the story is pretty good, but not as exciting or addictive like the outlander books read by Davina porter
Can't believe I bought this such a boring story with really nothing to do with Jaime and Claire. This story was awful. I think that the author is turning out short stories just to make profit and with no respect for the art.

A short story, I know, but of all the Gabaldon books so far, this is my least favorite. Story ok, not great.
a more substantial story that actually had an ending
He was not the problem
This was a real disappointment after the Outlander series which I had enjoyed so much.
