" I decided to read the Lord John series because I enjoy his character so much in the Outlander series. This book was well written and interesting. Full of mystery and intrigue. I have to admit that I think I was disappointed that it evolved around such a short period of time and only one specific set of circumstances are addressed. Not what I'm used to with Diana Gabaldon. However it was still entertaining and I've found out more about Lord John, which I suppose is the point in the first place. I will be reading the other Lord John novels, as well as the novellas. "
