I have loved the Outlander series and was looking forward to the Lord John series. I have nearly finished the 2nd and I must say Ms. Gabaldon was either bored, misguided, or under pressure from her publisher for more material. I am not in any way homophobic, but I find the constant rhetoric of "love" in these tomes extremely tiresome. These two books are giveaways for me. Please give us more Claire and Jamie. That is was she is good at. The old adage "if it ain't broke, don't fix it", definitely applies here. Very irritating reads.

As a big fan of Gabaldons Outland series I was prepared to like this book, that features a minor character from the the series, before I read it. I wasn't disapointed! The story is a great deal of fun on top of a great mystery with a liberal dose of unique historical trivia thrown in. You will laugh out loud a couple of pages into the book when the meaning of the title hits you!
