The epic, multivolume Outlander saga is the starting point for a brilliant new series that begins with the novel Lord John and the Private Matter. Filled with intrigue and mystery and starring one of the most popular Outlander characters, Lord John Grey, this fresh new tale is utterly captivating. In a richly drawn 18th-century London, Scottish exile Lord John faces a difficult situation. His cousin Olivia is engaged to marry the Honorable Joseph Trevelyan, but he has just observed something of a rather personal nature that, if confirmed, might put an end to any talk of marital bliss. Determined to investigate further, Lord John is distracted when the Crown calls for his services. A comrade in arms has been slain, and to complicate matters, the victim may have been a traitor. Now Lord John has not one, but two puzzling mysteries to solve.

"Jeff Woodman is at his best in another fabulous novel drawn from Gabaldon's Outlander series. When Lord John observes something that would make the marriage of his cousin to the Honorable John Trevelyan out of the question, he tries to tactfully investigate the disgraceful affliction. To do this, he must visit some of London's most notorious brothels. Woodman brings every character to life, making each unique and interesting. However, his greatest gift might be the always fascinating conversational tone that he brings to the text itself. Listeners will feel they're in eighteenth-century London, eavesdropping on private and scandalous situations. Gabaldon and Woodman make fans of even those who shy away from period fiction. S.G.B.
