Jacky Faber is framed as passing confidential US information to the British. Forced to flee Boston, she goes undercover as a governess for a prominent Puritan family. When outed by a nosy postmaster, she deserts the respectability of her position, dons a leotard and slippers, and poses as a Russian tightrope walker in a traveling circus.

But the law soon catches up with her, and prospects do not look good. Through her many adventures, Jacky has always found the ingenuity to escape dire situations, but this time it looks like Puss in Boots has run out of lives—and her happily-ever-after will be cut short at the foot of the gallows.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A solid and sentimental entry in an underrated series.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Katherine Kellgren is astounding, as always, as she narrates the twelfth and final book of this series. With such a nimble narrator, listeners will feel as though they’re hearing an entire cast performing men, women, and children with American, Irish, Scottish, and other British accents. Fans of the series know what to expect and won’t be disappointed as Jacky Faber continues her roguish ways…Meyer’s story has many laugh-out-loud moments, but Kellgren’s performance may also bring tears. She gives a wild, wonderful send-off to both Jacky and her author, L. A. Meyer. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”
