Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade by Diana Gabaldon
Lord John Grey is a minor character in this author's Outlander series. This is her second book about him, and better than the first. While it isn't great literature, it is a very good and well written story. Lord John is trying to solve the mystery of his father's death 17 years earlier. In addition, he serves in the British Army during the Seven Years' War as well as living a secret life he must keep secret even from his own family. It's good reading while waiting for the next book in the Outlander series - An Echo in the Bone, which is scheduled to be published September 22, 2009. I rate this book 4 out of 5.
