Diana Gabaldon, the New York Times bestselling author of Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade and the Outlander novels, delivers three tales of war, intrigue, and espionage that feature one of her most popular characters: Lord John Grey.
In Lord John and the Hellfire Club, Lord John glimpses a stranger in the doorway of a gentlemen’s club—and is stirred by a desperate entreaty to meet in private. The rendezvous forestalled by a sudden murder, Lord John will wade into a maze of political treachery and a dangerous, debauched underground society. . . . In Lord John and the Succubus, English soldiers fighting in Prussia are rattled by the nocturnal visitations of a deadly woman who sucks life and soul from a man. Called to investigate the night-hag, Lord John finds a murdered soldier and a treacherous Gypsy, and comes to the stark realization that among the spirits that haunt men, none frighten more than the specters conjured by the heart. . . . In Lord John and the Haunted Soldier, Lord John is thrust into the deadly case of an exploding battlefield cannon. Wounded in the same battle, Lord John is called to testify and soon confronts his own ghosts—and the shattering prospect that a traitor is among the ranks of His Majesty’s armed forces.
Lord John Grey returns in three entertaining tales of hauntings, apparitions, murder, and honor in this tripartite release from the author of the wildly popular Outlander novels. In "Lord John and the Hellfire Club," the eponymous hero gets sucked into a frightening underground society; in "Lord John and the Succubus," a deadly spectre sucks the life and soul from frightened men; and in "Lord John and the Haunted Soldier," treachery threatens His Majesty's armed forces as Lord John is faced with his own ghost.
