Sweeping historical drama from the Top Ten Sunday Times bestselling author. A keepsake collection of Lord John Grey's shorter adventures and a spectacular addition to any Gabaldon fan's library, Lord John and the Hand of the Devils brings these three unique novellas together for the first time. Lord John and the Hellfire Club marks the first appearance of Lord John outside the Outlander novels (and chronologically precedes the novel Lord John and the Private Matter). A young diplomat is killed in the street as he begs Lord John for help. Witnessing the murder, Grey vows to avenge the young man, as the trail leads to the notorious Hellfire Club and the dark caves beneath Medmenham Abbey In Lord John and the Succubus, Grey's assignment as liaison to a Hanoverian regiment in Germany finds him caught between two threats: the advancing French and Austrian army, and the menace of a mysterious 'night-hag,' who spreads fear and death among the troops. Acknowledging that he is unlikely to fall victim to a succubus, Lord John is obliged to contend with the marauding night-hag before the enemy arrives. This tale with a touch of the supernatural bridges the action between Gabaldon's two full-length Lord John tales. Finally, in Lord John and the Haunted Soldier, Lord John is called to the Arsenal at Woolwich to answer a Royal Commission of Enquiry's questions regarding a cannon that exploded during the battle of Krefeld (a central action in Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade). Accusations ensue, and Lord John finds himself knee-deep in a morass of gunpowder, treason, and plot -- haunted by a dead lieutenant, and followed by a man with no face.

Abenteuer, Leidenschaft und Spannung – Diana Gabaldon macht süchtig! Lord John Grey hat ein Dilemma: Am liebsten würde er Jamie Fraser, der sein Dasein als Strafgefangener in Helwater fristet, nie wiedersehen. Doch seine Offiziersehre verpflichtet ihn, eine politische Intrige aufzuklären, deren Schlüssel allein bei Fraser liegt. Doch auch Jamie Fraser steht vor einer schwierigen Entscheidung. Wenn er sich weigert, John Grey bei den Ermittlungen gegen ein Nest jakobitischer Verschwörer zu helfen, setzt er alles aufs Spiel, was er liebt. Ist er Grey jedoch zu Willen, geht er das Risiko ein, alte Kameraden zu verraten. Doch die Katastrophe von Culloden, bei der Jamie seine geliebte Claire verloren hat, wirft einen langen Schatten, und Jamie muss verhindern, dass sich die Jakobiten erneut erheben – und erneut dem Untergang entgegen gehen. Unfreiwillig vereint, verfolgen der Offizier und der Rebell ein gemeinsames Ziel – und besinnen sich zögernd der Freundschaft, die sie einst verband. Der dritte Band der Lord-John-Saga.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Diana Gabaldon weaves a dazzling tale of history, intrigue, and suspense in this first novel featuring one of her most popular characters from the Outlander saga: Lord John Grey. The year is 1757. On a clear morning in mid-June, Lord John Grey emerges from London’s Beefsteak Club, his mind in turmoil. A nobleman and a high-ranking officer in His Majesty’s army, Grey has just witnessed something shocking. But his efforts to avoid a scandal that might destroy his family are interrupted by something still more urgent: The Crown appoints him to investigate the brutal murder of a comrade-in-arms who may have been a traitor. Obliged to pursue two inquiries at once, Major Grey finds himself ensnared in a web of treachery and betrayal that touches every stratum of English society—and threatens all he holds dear. Praise for Lord John and the Private Matter “[A] thoroughly entertaining and wonderfully witty historical mystery set in the richly detailed, occasionally bawdy world of Georgian England.”—Booklist “Packed with vivid description and detail. Gabaldon aptly transports readers to eighteenth-century London, with all its reeking humanity and glitteringly elegant excess.”—BookPage
