Overview

Diana Gabaldon, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Outlander series, delivers captivating tales of history, intrigue, and suspense that feature one of her most popular characters: Lord John Grey. This thrilling eBook collection—featuring three novels and one collection of novellas—follows Lord John as he defends his country, ferrets out spies, and unravels a haunting family mystery.
 
LORD JOHN AND THE PRIVATE MATTER
 
“Packed with vivid description and detail . . . transports readers to eighteenth-century London.”—BookPage
 
London, 1757. Lord John Grey, a nobleman and a high-ranking officer in His Majesty’s army, has just witnessed something shocking. But his efforts to avoid a scandal are interrupted when the Crown appoints him to investigate the brutal murder of a comrade-in-arms. Obliged to pursue two inquiries at once, Major Grey finds himself ensnared in a web of betrayal that touches every stratum of English society—and threatens all he holds dear.
 
LORD JOHN AND THE HAND OF DEVILS
A Collection of Novellas
 
“Gabaldon’s strengths are on full display.”—Kirkus Reviews
 
In Lord John and the Hellfire Club, Lord John glimpses a stranger at a gentleman’s club—and is drawn into a maze of political treachery and a dangerous underground society. In Lord John and the Succubus, English soldiers in combat are rattled by a lethal creature that appears at night, and Lord John is called to investigate. In Lord John and the Haunted Soldier, Lord John is thrust into a baffling case that forces him to confront the prospect that a traitor is among the ranks of His Majesty’s armed forces.
 
LORD JOHN AND THE BROTHERHOOD OF THE BLADE
 
“First-rate . . . [Gabaldon’s] writing is always vivid and often lyrical.”—The Washington Post
 
It’s been seventeen years since Lord John’s father was found dead, accusations of his role as a Jacobite agent staining the family’s name. Now, Lord John’s brother has mysteriously received a page of their father’s lost diary, convincing John that someone knows the Greys’ secrets. So he turns to the only man he can trust: the Scottish Jacobite Jamie Fraser. But when Jamie yields the missing piece of an astounding puzzle, Lord John must decide whether his family’s honor is worth his life.
 
THE SCOTTISH PRISONER
 
“Engrossing . . . masterfully paced, with exciting plot twists, swift reversals, and robust characterizations.”—The Globe and Mail
 
London, 1760. Paroled prisoner Jamie Fraser has sworn off politics, fighting, and war. Until Lord John Grey shows up with documents that expose a damning case of corruption against a British officer. But they also hint at a more insidious danger. Soon Lord John and Jamie are companions on the road to Ireland, a country whose dark castles hold dreadful secrets, and whose bogs hide the bones of the dead.

I have followed the Outlander series faithfully since 91 & so I felt I should follow the LJG series since it tied into the other at some points.  While it did provide a  good bit of information involving the outlander series it can stand on its own two feet as another great series by Gabaldon.  I really enjoyed reading about things from John Greys point of view. How he became the man he turned into was inspiring in some ways, heart breaking in many others. This series is worth reading!

This series is a great read. Good mysteries woven around the story of Lord John, making him a real and very likable character.

If you are familiar with the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon you already know Lord John Grey. This series expands on his character outside of that series. I sometimes do not like her writing and choice of using extremely outdated English in her telling of the stories (having an e-reader with a dictionary is a blessing!!) hence the 4 stars. That being said, I have to stress that I love her books and will continue to read whatever she writes. You can read and enjoy the Lord John series as a stand alone since each novel or novella is a complete story unto itself.

I can't say they are all mystery books in the typical sense on the word. I does begin with a mystery and continues from there in the life of Lord John, a homosexual man in the Victorian era. Well researched and quite interesting but I found Lord John to be a bit flat and not my kind of character.

Dont expect this to be "part of" the outlander series, alfhough it is the same people, just with a different character focus. Had a bit of trouble following the story. I had just finished reading all 7000+ pages of the Outlander books. Still VERY good

I am a huge fan of the Outlander series, but this is a drag. The only good thing about the books are they fill in a few,very few, blanks from Outlander.

I'm very disappointed in this series of books about Lord John. It was a waste of 40.00.
