Publisher's Summary

This title also appears as a novella in the collection “Lord John and the Hand of Devils.”
New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon, beloved for her immensely popular Outlander series, crafted this fast-paced tale of intrigue when asked to contribute to an anthology honoring the late, great Ellis Peters. Outlander supporting player Lord John Grey investigates the death of a red-haired man only to become mixed up in the affairs of Sir Francis Dashwood and his notorious Hellfire Club. And as Lord John digs further, his life becomes threatened.

STOP! Buy Lord John and The Hand of Devils instead

I hope you read my review title before buying this, the first of Gabaldon's Lord John tales. It's not that the story is bad (it isn't) but it is the beginnings of fleshing out the characters of a post-Dragonfly in Amber/Voyager (from the Outlander series) John Grey and Harry Quarry. And the stories only get better from here.

The problem is that "Lord John and the Hellfire Club" appears in the short story trilogy "Lord John and The Hand of Devils" along with two other short stories. So, for the sake of value, and the benefit of getting two other great John Grey shorts (Lord John and the Succubus/Lord John and the Haunted Soldier), get that instead of this book. I didn;t realize until after I had both, that I had a duplicate tale among them.

Jeff Woodman is perfect as both John and his earthier friend Harry, giving them both unique and likeable voices in their first story together since leaving Ardsmuir Prison. Both characters grow and get better with future tales...so get the Hand of Devils to hear more of them instead!

A Great Mystery

I've never been able to get into Diana Gabaldon's <i>Outlander</i>, not being much historical romances, but I have to say that I enjoy the mysteries Gabaldon has created around Major Lord John Grey. This character is interesting for many reasons not the least of which is he is a gay man in 18th century England where they are even less welcoming of homosexuality than they are today. The mystery is engaging and well-read by Jeff Woodman. I've already read Gabaldon's follow-up to this short story, <i>Lord John and the Private Matter</i>, which was not as good as this story, but still worth reading. I look forward to further adventures with Lord John.
