In âA Plague of Zombies,â Lord John unexpectedly becomes military governor of Jamaica when the original governor is gnawed by what probably wasnât a giant rat. âA Leaf on the Wind of All Hallowsâ is the moving story of Roger MacKenzieâs parents during World War II. In âVirgins,â Jamie Fraser, aged nineteen, and Ian Murray, aged twenty, become mercenaries in France, no matter that neither has yet bedded a lass or killed a man. But theyâre trying. . . . âA Fugitive Greenâ is the story of Lord Johnâs elder brother, Hal, and a seventeen-year-old rare book dealer with a sideline in theft, forgery, and blackmail. And finally, in âBesieged,â Lord John learns that his mother is in Havanaâand that the British Navy is on their way to lay siege to the city.
