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.

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.

Claire Randall, a former British combat nurse, is just back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach—an “outlander”—in a Scotland torn by war and raiding clans in the year of Our Lord . . . 1743. Claire is catapulted into the intrigues of a world that threatens her life, and may shatter her heart.
