Diana Gabaldon, #1 New York Times bestselling 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.

Good stories, some audio glitches and not as clear audio as other Audiobooks.
I very much like these novellas and read them in print a couple years ago. Having enjoyed Jeff Woodman read Gabaldon's "Lord John and The Private Matter" on cassette, I thought I would get the other Lord John audiobooks from the iTunes store. So far, most of them have had fine audio quality, but this one is distinctly muffled sounding by comparison. I see in iTunes, that "Hand of the Devils" is 48kbps data rate, while the others are 64kbps, and the difference seems to be audible, for the worse in this case. There are also editing glitches where Mr. Woodman re-reads a line and the duplicate phrases were not snipped out. I hope that Apple and Audible will fix these issues and allow people who purchased this version to freely download one that is up to standard.
