Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "I want my time and money back"

    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.

    "My least favorite so far"

    A short story, I know, but of all the Gabaldon books so far, this is my least favorite. Story ok, not great.

    "Is the really Gabaldon?"

    Gabaldon is my all time favorite author. I read the Outlander series over and over. All I can say about the one is that she must have been hitting the whiskey that day! The only thing I recognized was JG'S name.

    "disppointment"
    What would have made Lord John and the Hellfire Club better?

    a more substantial story that actually had an ending


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jeff Woodman’s performances?

    He was not the problem


    Any additional comments?

    This was a real disappointment after the Outlander series which I had enjoyed so much.

    "Debauchery and Honor in 18th Century London"

    A historical short story, beautifully written and read. This is an interesting footnote for an important character, Lord John, in Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series. A biting class commentary.

    "Another Must Read...or Listen from Diana Gabaldon!"

    Loved it!! A slight departure from the "big books" of the Outlander series, but absolutely fabulous - just like Diana Gabaldon and Lord John himself!!

    "Quick, engaging mystery"

    I am always impressed with Ms. Gabaldone's work, and this was certainly up to snuff! My favorite part was... well, literally everything. It is such a short piece that there isn't time for unexciting parts to happen! The narrator's take on voices and inflection was superb.

    Story
    "Hellfire and ?"

    Unfortunately this was the least interesting of all her books. Kinda an afterthought. I believe she was busy elsewhere trying to get her thoughts in order for her prize series "Outlander". My suggestion don't bother.
