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.

    "the beginning of a new series"

    The beginning of a new series with Lord John as the main character. A good story with an excellent narrator.

    Story
    "The drama goes on"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Goodness, yes! All of the books in these series have me caught up.


    What does Jeff Woodman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Nothing extreme- just my usual excitement


    Any additional comments?

    What a wonderful way to bridge the stories throughout Outlander and highlight the relationship of Lord John with Jamie Fraser.

    "mehhhh..."

    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

    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.
