Publisher's Summary

Diana Gabaldon, number one New York Times best-selling author of the celebrated Outlander series, delivers three mesmerizing tales of war, intrigue, and espionage that feature one of her most popular characters: Lord John Grey.

In "Lord John and the Hellfire Club", Lord John glimpses a stranger in the doorway of a gentleman's club - and is stirred by a desperate entreaty to meet with him in private. It is an impulse that will lead Lord John into a maze of political treachery and a dangerous, debauched underground society. 

In "Lord John and the Succubus", English soldiers fighting in Prussia are rattled by a lethal creature that appears at night. Called to investigate, Lord John soon realizes that among the spirits that haunt men, none frighten more than the specters conjured by the heart. 

In "Lord John and the Haunted Soldier", Lord John is thrust into the baffling case of an exploding battlefield cannon that ultimately forces him to confront his own ghosts - and the shattering prospect that a traitor is among the ranks of His Majesty's armed forces.

Great. But not the greatest.

For some reason the recording was very unstable. It faded in and out a lot. I’m not sure whether it was an editing issue, however, there were a few places where the narrator repeated the same sentence.

The Narrator has a lovely voice, and his accent talent is amazing.

Accents

Loved this book but hated the Scottish accent used for Jamie Fraser. However, John Grey and others were well represented.

Disappointing

I couldn't get into this one. Didn't like the narrator at all. I think that was the main reason. So used to the Outlander narrator who is just brilliant. I had to force myself to get to the end.

Great story, some better editing needed

Really enjoy the Lord John books and generally like Jeff Woodman’s narration. Curious why he gave some Germans an American accent but overall well read. Some editing issues such as repetition of lines now edited out.

Narration not as bad as people have made out.

I love all of Diana's books - and these are no exception. I was expecting the narration to be awful based on other comments. He is no Davina (the audio book wizard), but not terrible!!

Sad production errors make for flawed listening

The story lines of the book are generally as we would expect from Diana but sadly the production lacks so so much.

Far too many errors:-
The re-recordings that end up with repeated sections cause frustration to the listener.
The performers fake upper class British accent is rather distracting.
So many English words said in that fake British accent that are wrongly pronounced it quite ruins the whole book.

Review - Lord John & hand of devils

I found the pronunciation of some of the text quite off putting and there were a number of long hesitations with repeated text in the recording. Having listened to all the Outlander recordings I found the quality of this one to be of a much lower standard
