In Mississippi Jack, the fifth installment in the Bloody Jack series, 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.
The Bloody Jack Adventure books are available from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.

"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."
