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)
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
If you enjoy gay male scenes and culture, you'll love this book!
Not technically....I was looking for historical mysteries and this I would classify as more gay culture with a story.
Would make no sense to those who had not read the outlander series, but otherwise a un addition for those of us who appreciate and became fond of John Gray.
Lord John series is a splendid addition to the Outlander series. I have always loved his character, and I am enjoying hearing his perspective on things. This narrator is good, but it was hard to get used to the choppiness of this book. I suppose I am just used to Davina Porter's narration. This unusual style did not make the book any less enjoyable. Starting book 2 tonight!
Yes I have all of the Outlander series and the Lord John series now, so I'm going to try to read them in 'chronological' order.
Believe it or not, it seemed 'real' to me. I normally read fantasy (supernatural and superhuman), so this is enough of a change to be fantasy, but also keep me anchored to 'the real world'
Of course, Lord John, but other than him, I really enjoyed the valet Tom. His combination of innocence and cunning led to make me wonder more and more about him. That's what I like about Diana Gabaldon's characters. They are all so deep.
I cry and laugh through all of Diana Gabaldon's books/stories. I laughed more through the Lord Johns.
I didn't think I would like any of the Lord John series because of the change in narrators, but once I got into them, the change was perfect. I love the accents.
Love DG, but this seems hastily written and uninspired. Very corny. I enjoy John Grey in the Outlander series, where he seems more authentic.
