Diana Gabaldon takes readers back to eighteenth-century Britain as Lord John Grey pursues a deadly family secret as well as a clandestine love affair, set against the background of the Seven Years War.

Seventeen years earlier, Grey's father, the Duke of Pardloe, shot himself, days before he was to be accused of being a Jacobite traitor. By raising a regiment to fight at Culloden, Grey's elder brother has succeeded in redeeming the family name, aided by Grey, now a major in that regiment. But now, on the eve of the regiment's move to Germany, comes a mysterious threat that throws the matter of the Duke's death into stark new question, and brings the Grey brothers into fresh conflict with the past and each other.

From barracks and parade-grounds to the battlefields of Prussia and the stony fells of the Lake District, Lord John's struggle to find the truth leads him through danger and passion, ever deeper, toward the answer to the question at the centre of his soul - what is it that is most important to a man? Love, loyalty, family name? Self-respect, or honesty? Surviving both the battle of Krefeld and a searing personal betrayal, he returns to the Lake District to find the man who may hold the key to his quest: a Jacobite prisoner named Jamie Fraser.

Here, Grey finds his truth and faces a final choice: between honour and life itself.

Industry Reviews

"Gabaldon provides a rich, abundantly researched, entirely readable portrait of life among the English upper classes in the 1750s. From London's literary salons and political intrigue to fearsome battle scenes in the Seven Years' War, her writing is always vivid and often lyrical" * The Washington Post *

More interesting reading of Lord John

true

A good read however a little misleading

Having never read any of the Lord John series, I bought this on the assumption that Jamie played a fairly major part in the book...("the secret of lord johns past lies in Jamie Frasers hands).....he does not!!! It was a great read and certainly gave some answers to questions I had regarding the Outlander series however I felt that the use of Jamie's name was solely used in order to sell the book. I would not have bought the book otherwise.

Diana Gabaldon

About the Author


Diana Gabaldon is the author of the award-winning, #1 NYT-Bestselling Outlander novels, described by Salon magazine as the smartest historical sci-fi adventure-romance story ever written by a science Ph.D. with a background in scripting Scrooge McDuck comics.

The adventure began in 1991 with the classic Outlander (historical fiction with a Moebius twist), has continued through seven more New York Times-bestselling novels, Dragonfly in Amber, Voyager, Drums of Autumn, The Fiery Cross, A Breath of Snow and Ashes , An Echo in the Bone, and Written in My Own Heart's Blood, with more than twenty-six million copies in print worldwide. 

The series is published in 26 countries and 23 languages, and includes a nonfiction (well, relatively) companion volume, The Outlandish Companion, which provides details on the settings, background, characters, research, and writing of the first novels in the series. Gabaldon (it's pronounced GAA-bull-dohn, rhymes with stone) has also written several books in a sub-series featuring Lord John Grey (a major minor character from the main series):  Lord John and The Private Matter, Lord John and the Hand of Devils, Lord John And The Brotherhood Of The Blade, and The Scottish Prisoner.

Returning to her comic-book roots, she has also written a graphic novel titled The Exile (set within the Outlander universe and featuring the main characters from Outlander), but told from the viewpoint of Jamie Fraser and his godfather, Murtagh. The graphic novel is illustrated by Hoang Nguyen, and published by Del-Rey.

The eighth and most recent major novel in the  Outlander series, Written in My Own Heart's Blood, made its debut as number one on the New York Times bestseller list. 

Diana's current writing projects include the ninth major novel in the Outlander series, as yet untitled, and a second volume of The Outlandish Companion. She is also serving as a co-producer and advisor for the Outlander TV series produced by the Starz network and Tall Ship Productions, which is based on her novels.

Diana and her husband, Douglas Watkins, have three adult children and live mostly in Scottsdale, Arizona.
