97. Lord John and the Hand of Devils

By Diana Gabaldon
Rated: 4 Stars

This book contains a short story titled Hellfire and two novellas. Hellfire has finds Lord John swearing vengeance in London for a murdered government official, leading him to a deconsecrated abbey where members of the political elite indulge their basest desires.

The first Novella pits Lord John against a succubus that plagues his Prussian encampment, and combines humor with military strategy and supernatural myth. And the second Novela finds Lord John investigating the cause of a cannon explosion in the English countryside that results in a fellow officer's death.
