Book Description

Nov. 29 2011 Lord John Grey
In a novel featuring Outlander hero Jamie Fraser in a major role, #1 bestselling author Diana Gabaldon continues the Lord John series.

Jamie Fraser, a Scottish Jacobite officer paroled as a prisoner of war on an estate in the Lake District, finds the numbness of his days disturbed. First, by dreams of his dead wife, then by the presence of the small son he cannot claim. Much more disturbing is the sudden reappearance in his life of Lord John Grey, with a summons that will take him - again - from everything he values.

A legacy from a dead friend has led Lord John and his brother Hal in pursuit of a corrupt army officer, along a trail of politics and murder. The matter becomes critical when the trail leads into Ireland, with a baffling message left in the tongue called "Erse" - the language spoken by Scottish Highlanders.

Jamie is forced to help the Greys, in order to guard his own secrets. But the Greys have secrets, too, which may deprive him of his life, as well as his liberty.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not so hot Sept. 10 2012
By Anna
While Diana is, as ever, a master of description, this book was a hot mess. Disjointed and confusing, it was not what the title promised but another boring Lord John military mystery plunked between a couple rough and sketchy Jamie chapters. I'm no prude, but the opening came off not as the bold and risque move she seems to think it was, but rather just plain TMI gross. I could never warm up to Lord John's family and friends for some reason, and can't this time either. I could have cared less about the plot, and what could have been a deep and meaningful interaction between Lord John and Jamie just didn't happen. They hardly seemed to notice each other and Jamie seemed to have zero to do with the Lord John mystery, except as an excuse to draw us in with the title. I actually left this book sitting on the shelf for half a year without finishing it, which is unheard of as I am a big Gabaldon fan. The concept of a book soley dwelling on the two protagonists was excellent, but didn't deliver. I'm sorry to say that about Gabaldon, but the fact that I wasn't even interested enough to finish the thing says a lot. She lately seems to be sacrificing character and content for her much-lauded descriptive skills (i.e, endless portrayals of people and events that seem to have no real depth or necessary relation to the main characters), and this book was no exception.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disconcerting and Poorly Written June 8 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Are we supposed to go back in time, with flimsy references to events now over twenty five years old? (as per the main series). It's a bit much to expect from Gabaldon. She explains that VOYAGER is the time frame for this story, or 1760. Do I have to go get that book to refresh my memory?

CANADA did not exist as a country in 1760, the British military conflicts before this date and soon after were with ACADIA and NOUVELLE FRANCE.

There are many typos and words that were mistakenly used in many paragraphs, the editing was obviously automated and nobody actually read this book before publication.

Another effort from the publisher and author to fill the long void between the main series next publication with Lord John foolishness. Raking in more income while we wait...and wait. So happy for them :(

5.0 out of 5 stars Diana Gabaldon is a genius! Dec 12 2011
Her writing and characters are so multi-dimensional, you can literally feel yourself in the room experiencing their lives and conversations! Gabaldon is a master at creating mood through description as well as conversation. This book really does well to tide a person over in between her last Outlander novel, Echo in the Bone, and her next one, Written in My Own Heart's Blood.

I am a big fan of Diana and recently completed the Outlander series (7000 pages).... next book in series due out in June.2014.
I wanted to read one of her books on one of the characters in the Outlander series before the arrival of the her latest book in June. ..
I am hooked on her writing style and knowledge of European history from the 1700.s. Her ability to create incredible characters around these historical events that shaped the North America we know not only good reading but informative.......
Diana Gabraldon's historical fictional writing and research skills are first rate..........

5.0 out of 5 stars Typical of Diana--a Great Story May 17 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book fills in the gap in time of what Jamie was doing while Claire was back in her own time raising Brianna. It's a good read and if the shear mass of the main series intimidates you too much, this is a stand-alone book which could be read before, after, or not in conjunction with the main series.
