LoveReading View on The Scottish Prisoner

Corruption, conspiracy and murder abound in the 4th full adventure for the aristocratic soldier come spy Lord John, who we first encountered in Diana Gabaldon’s time travelling Outlander series. Set in the late 18th Century these fascinating historical fiction novels are easy to read, really well researched and interestingly have a gay central character at a time when being homosexual was a capital offence.

The Scottish Prisoner Synopsis

1760. Jamie Fraser is a paroled prisoner-of-war in the remote Lake District. Close enough to the son he cannot claim as his own, his quiet existence is interrupted first by dreams of his lost wife, then by the appearance of Tobias Quinn, an erstwhile comrade from the Rising. Lord John Grey - aristocrat, soldier, sometime spy - is in possession of papers which reveal a damning case of corruption and murder against a British officer. But the documents also hint at a far more dangerous conspiracy. Soon Lord John and Jamie are unwilling companions on the road to Ireland, a country whose castles hold dreadful secrets, and where the bones of the dead are hidden, in an epic story of treachery - and scores that can only be settled in blood.
