In her much-anticipated new novel, the New York Times bestselling author of the Outlander saga brings back one of her most compelling characters: Lord John Greysoldier, gentleman, and no mean hand with a blade. Here Diana Gabaldon brilliantly weaves together the strands of Lord Johns secret and public livesa shattering family mystery, a love affair with potentially disastrous consequences, and a war that stretches from the Old World to the New. . . .

In 1758, in the heart of the Seven Years War, Britain fights by the side of Prussia in the Rhineland. For Lord John and his titled brother Hal, the battlefield will be a welcome respite from the torturous mystery that burns poisonously in their familys history. Seventeen years earlier, Lord Johns late father, the Duke of Pardloe, was found dead, a pistol in his hand and accusations of his role as a Jacobite agent staining forever a familys honor.

Now unlaid ghosts from the past are stirring. Lord Johns brother has mysteriously received a page of their late fathers missing diary. Someone is taunting the Grey family with secrets from the grave, but Hal, with secrets of his own, refuses to pursue the matter and orders his brother to do likewise. Frustrated, John turns to a man who has been both his prisoner and his confessor: the Scottish Jacobite James Fraser.

Fraser can tell many secretsand withhold many others. But war, a forbidden affair, and Frasers own secrets will complicate Lord Johns quest. Until James Fraser yields the missing piece of an astounding puzzleand Lord John, caught between his courage and his conscience, must decide whether his familys honor is worth his life.
