The Scottish Prisoner

by Diana Gabaldon

The next instalment in the Lord John Gray series – as well as being a crossover to the well loved ‘Outlander’ series.

JAMIE IS BACK!!!

London, 1760. For Jamie Fraser, paroled prisoner-of-war in the remote Lake District, life could be worse: He’s not cutting sugar cane in the West Indies, and he’s close enough to the son he cannot claim as his own. But Jamie Fraser’s quiet existence is coming apart at the seams, interrupted first by dreams of his lost wife, then by the appearance of Tobias Quinn, an erstwhile comrade from the Rising.

Next comes Lord John, who needs Jamie to translate secret documents exposing corruption of a British officer…Soon Lord John and Jamie are unwilling companions on the road to Ireland, a country whose dark castles hold dreadful secrets, and whose bogs hide the bones of the dead.
