On a bright June day, Lord John Grey emerges from his club, his mind in turmoil. A nobleman and a high-ranking officer in His Majesty's Army, Grey has just witnessed something shocking. But his efforts to avoid a scandal that might destroy his family are interrupted by something still more urgent: the Crown appoints him to investigate the brutal murder of a comrade-in-arms, who might well have been a traitor. Obliged to pursue two inquiries at once, Major Grey finds himself ensnared in a web of treachery and betrayal that touches every level of society - and threatens all he holds dear. From the bawdy-houses of London's night world to the drawing rooms of the nobility, from the blood of a murdered corpse to the thundering seas of the East India Company, Lord John follows the elusive trail of the woman in green who may hold the key to everything - or to nothing at all. The early days of the Seven Years War come brilliantly to life in this historical adventure mystery by the acclaimed author whose unique and compelling storytelling has engrossed millions of readers worldwide.Hide synopsis

I enjoy Diana's writings as they have so much history ribboned in them. Sometimes she runs on a bit and I find in hard to understand unless I have a dictionary and her handbook close at hand,but I thoroughly enjoy everything she writes.
Not the spectacular work you may have come to expect from Ms Gabaldon, but compared to what else is out there in historical fiction it is certainly good and entertaining if not mesmerizing,romantic or cult inspiring like her Outlander series. There is too little thrillers and mysteries out there and ...
Throughly recommended for both the die-hard Gabaldon and the curious new comer, this book is not a part of the Outlander series per se, but takes place in the same time frame and involves some of the same characters. Familiarity with the Outlander series is not necessary to understand or enjoy the ...
