Book one in the Lord John series.

Fans of Gabaldon's marvelous Outlander series will recognize Lord John, the honorable British officer whose unrequited love for Jamie caused some conflict with Claire.

In this series (which has nothing to do with Outlander) we get to know more about Lord John. After seeing a blister on Joseph Trevelyan's "privy member," Lord John finds himself in an uncomfortable spot. Trevelyan is engaged to Grey's cousin, who has no idea her fiance is infected with a venereal disease. Lord John investigates this personal matter while also looking into the murder of Sergeant Timothy O'Connell, who may or may not be a spy.

The mystery itself is not all that interesting, but, as always, Gabaldon's character development alone will keep readers coming back for more.
