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.

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.

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.

Interesting piece of historical fiction

I actually listened to this twice before writing my review. I was a little confused the first time through, but must admit that I was also listening while distracted.

This is a story about Lord John Grey, from Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series. It was written as a prequel to a series of books specifically about this character. In this tale, Lord John is witness to a murder ... and also invited (somewhat against his will) to join the local Hellfire club. These incidents prove to be related in some rather unexpected ways.

I thought the narrator's voice was lovely, although his characterizations were not terribly varied.

I find the idea of creating a series about this particular character intriguing. This audio book felt like a novella, so there was not as much development as one might prefer. Nevertheless, I found it entertaining.
