OUTLANDER 3: Nell’«Amuleto d’ambra» Claire Randall, viaggiatrice nel tempo e nello spazio, aveva incominciato a spiegare una difficile verità alla figlia Brianna. Negli anni in cui era ufficialmente data per dispersa, fra il 1945 e il 1946, era in realtà precipitata, attraverso il magico cerchio di pietre di Craigh na Dun, nella Scozia del Settecento, dove si era innamorata follemente del nobile giacobita James Fraser e per evitare che venisse ucciso dagli inglesi nella battaglia di Culloden, era addirittura andata con James alla corte di Versailles, che tradizionalmente appoggiava la causa scozzese. Tuttavia, James e Claire erano dovuti ritornare precipitosamente a Lallybroch, nelle Highlands, con un nulla di fatto: da Parigi il nipote di Giacomo Stuart, Bonnie Prince Charles, era determinato a organizzare la rivolta dei clan, che Claire ben sapeva si sarebbe conclusa in una carneficina per gli scozzesi. Braccati dagli inglesi che ritenevano James Fraser uno dei principali sobillatori e guardati con crescente sospetto dagli scozzesi, a causa del loro ovvio scetticismo circa l’esito dello scontro finale con gli inglesi, James e Claire consumano la loro ardente e avventurosa storia d’amore, consapevoli che Claire si sarebbe ben presto trovata davanti a una scelta difficile: seguire fino in fondo il suo uomo perdendosi definitivamente nel passato o tornare a un presente che ormai non le appartiene più, con la sola speranza di portare con sé una traccia.

“This could be the worthy Lord John Grey’s breakout novel, as readers are treated to large dollops of Outlander hero Jamie Fraser.”—Booklist A captivating return to the world Diana Gabaldon created in her Outlander and Lord John series, The Scottish Prisoner is a masterpiece of epic history, wicked deceit, and scores that can only be settled in blood. London, 1760. For Jamie Fraser, paroled prisoner-of-war, life is coming apart at the seams. In the remote Lake District, where he’s close enough to the son he cannot claim as his own, Jamie’s quiet existence is interrupted first by dreams of his lost wife, then by the appearance of an erstwhile comrade still fighting to rally the Irish. But Jamie has sworn off politics, fighting, and war. Until Lord John Grey shows up with a summons that will take him away from everything he loves—again. Lord John is in possession of explosive documents that expose a damning case of corruption against a British officer. But they also hint at a more insidious danger. 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. Praise for The Scottish Prisoner “Call it what you will—historical adventure, conspiracy thriller—it’s an engrossing story, masterfully paced, with exciting plot twists, swift reversals, and robust characterizations.”—The Globe and Mail “As always, Gabaldon goes above and beyond. . . . If you love historical fiction, this book could be a good entrance point into the Outlander world.”—Bookreporter

SPECIAL FOR THIS EDITION: The Return of Jamie & Claire -- a sneak preview of the next Outlander novel! Plus the short story Lord John and the Hell-fire Club. Adored bestselling author Diana Gabaldon brings us the first book in a new trilogy featuring many of the characters from her wildly popular Outlander series. In her New York Times bestselling Outlander novels, Diana Gabaldon introduced millions of readers to a dazzling world of history and adventure -- a world of vibrant settings and utterly unforgettable characters. Now one of these characters, Major Lord John Grey, opens the door to his own part of this world -- eighteenth-century London, a seething anthill of nobility and rabble peopled by soldiers and spies, whores and dukes. Great Britain is battling France for supremacy on three continents -- and life is good for a soldier. The year is 1757. On a clear morning in mid-June, Lord John Grey emerges from London’s Beefsteak Club, his mind in turmoil. A nobleman and a high-ranking officer in His Majesty’s Army, Grey has just witnessed something shocking. But his efforts to avoid a scandal that might destroy his family are interrupted by something still more urgent: the Crown appoints him to investigate the brutal murder of a comrade in arms, who may have been a traitor. Obliged to pursue two inquiries at once, Major Grey finds himself ensnared in a web of treachery and betrayal that touches every stratum of English society -- and threatens all he holds dear. From the bawdy houses of London’s night-world to the stately drawing rooms of the nobility, and from the blood of a murdered corpse to the thundering seas ruled by the majestic fleet of the East India Company, Lord John pursues the elusive trails of a vanishing footman and a woman in green velvet, who may hold the key to everything -- or nothing. The early days of the Seven Years War come brilliantly to life in this historical mystery by an author whose unique and compelling storytelling has engrossed millions of readers worldwide. From the Trade Paperback edition.
