  Booklist Review

Decked out in a white, lacy wedding gown and headed for the church, Jacky is seized by the British Navy and sent on a dangerous dual mission: first, to spy on the Spanish in the Caribbean and, second, to locate the remains of a treasure ship sunk some 75 years earlier and retrieve its gold and jewels for the Crown. Meyer weaves details of 19th-century history, lore, and ballads into a fast-paced and often amusing swashbuckler. Fans of the Bloody Jack Adventure series will relish the latest escapades of this high-spirited and decidedly unconventional heroine.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2009 Booklist
Summary
<p>On the very day that Jacky Faber is to wed her true love, she is kidnapped by British Naval Intelligence and forced to embark on yet another daring mission--this time to search for sunken Spanish gold. But when Jacky is involved, things don't always go as planned.<br> <br> Jacky has survived battles on the high seas, the stifling propriety of a Boston finishing school, and even confinement in a dank French prison. But no adventure has quite matched her opportunistic street-urchin desires--until now.<br></p>
