4 out of 5 stars

http://angelswithattitudebookreviews-...

In this highly-anticipated new novel, Diana Gabaldon brings back one of her most compelling characters: the unforgettable Lord John Grey - soldier, gentleman, and no mean hand with a blade. Set in the heart of the eighteenth century, Lord John's world is one of mystery and menace. Diana Gabaldon brilliantly weaves together the strands of Lord John's secret and public lives.

My Thoughts...

I just love Gabaldons books. From the very first she made you love the characters that are in her books. Even though this series is separate from her Outlander series she mentions another characters from previous books all the time as Jamie reminisces about the people part of his life.This is Jamie and Greys story. Jamie is an indentured servant(do to the war ) and working for a Lord in England when Greys brother Hal the Duke has him brought to him in secret as he has a mission he wants him to accomplish with his brother uncovering a traitorous spy bringing him to justice.Working together is going to be very uncomfortable for both men. Grey has feelings for Jamie and Jamie knows it but, chooses to ignore them.Jamie is between a rock and a hard place and cannot say no. They own him at this point and he has no choice but to help. A Scotsman and a Lord in his own right living among the hated English with torn loyalties. Missing his wife and child Claire who he sent through the stones before the war.A son he has but, can't claim as his own ways upon his mind. He an Grey start there adventure wrought with danger and intrigue. No only do they have to dodge bullets but Jamie needs to watch Grey back carefully as someone is out to serious hurt him and his family. Learning to like one another and perhaps form a friendship and work together to catch the spy bring him to justice. But,that easier said then done. Nothing goes as planned as we all no with missions. Tons of twists and turns along the way. Surprise endings and secrets kept and not spoken. And you so felt Jamie's pain for his loses and most of all the love of his missing wife Claire was tugging at your heart strings.Looking forward to the next adventure.
