The intrepid Jacky Faber, having once again eluded British authorities, heads west, hoping that no one will recognize her in the wilds of America. There she tricks the tall-tale hero Mike Fink out of his flatboat, equips it as a floating casino-showboat, and heads south to New Orleans, battling murderous bandits, British soldiers, and other scoundrels along the way. Will Jacky’s carelessness and impulsive actions ultimately cause her beloved Jaimy to be left in her wake?  Bold, daring, and downright fun, Jacky Faber proves once again that with resilience and can-do spirit, she can wiggle out of any scrape … well, almost.

Quotes & Awards

  • “For rousing exploits and acts of derring-do, listen to this fifth Bloody Jack adventure…Katherine Kellgren roars as Fink tries to capture and kill Jacky, purrs as Jacky attempts to sweet-talk her way out of a British brig, and sings period songs in a lovely crystal-pure voice. Kellgren’s performance makes this must-listening.”

    " I don't recommend this book - I liked the first three of this series, but now I don't like this one much. L.A. Meyer really needs a new plotline! It's the same as the other three, only more annoying and dumb. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Dragon Eyes Loves Manga | 2/3/2014

    " Not as good as the first two in the series, honestly those were the best. possibly because they were introductory to Jacky's antics. I do think that this was a decent book, and a worthwhile read, but don't get your hopes up too high. Something to think about though, She seems to do more good than harm in this book as opposed to her others where it really is a toss up. "
