Lord John is in a difficult spot. His cousin Olivia is engaged to marry the Honorable Joseph Trevelyan, but he has just observed something of a rather personal nature that, if confirmed, might put an end to any talk of marital bliss. Determined to investigate further, Lord John is distracted when the Crown calls for his services. A comrade in arms has been slain, and to complicate matters, the victim may have been a traitor. Now Lord John has not one, but two puzzling mysteries to solve.

"Gabaldon takes readers for a walk on the wild side....A compelling and unique period mystery for the author's legion of fans." (Kirkus Review)
I just couldn't make myself care about any of the characters, here. All seemed quite shallow, and plot was completely a mystery-who-dun-it - not my genre. Was hoping for something more in terms of character development & adventure, e.g. Outlander series....~sigh~
People who wonder what homosexual life in the 1700s England would be like
Maybe davina porter.
Can't wait for the new outlander series book
I didn't expect to enjoy this story but Diane Gabaldon's writing brought every character alive. An intriguing story that kept me guessing to the end.
Say something about yourself!
Tried this based on the quality of Gabaldon's outlander series. Just didn't cut it for me. I won't continue the series. A bit of a bore for the most part.
The story was ok, but after listening to the Outlander Series for the past few weeks, it is kind of a let down. The narrator isn't near as good, either. oh well, hopefully the Lord John series will keep my occupied while I wait for book 9 to come out.
yes, because I really liked the characters. The narrator is amazing with the voices
He is amazing with his voices
No. I didn't realize it was such a short book. I wish it was in more detail of what happened with the characters.
as I wear hearing aids, the narrator is very important to me. I heard every word and as always Diana Gaboldon kept me on the edge of my seat. ready for the next book.
