  Booklist Review

In the newest Bloody Jack adventure, set in 1806, Jacky forsakes the seas for America's rivers, hoping to find her beloved Jaimie. She swipes Mike Fink's keelboat, turns it into a showboat, and floats down the Mississippi to New Orleans, where she outwits Jean and Pierre Lafitte at the poker table. The lengthy, episodic, and sometimes raunchy story meanders along with many entertaining scenes, but it sometimes loses its focus and even the buoyant spirit that is the series' hallmark. Readers may find themselves hoping that Jacky will soon, very soon be reunited with Jaimie. For avid fans.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2007 Booklist
Summary
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?<br> 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.
