This is the wrap up for the Jacky Faber series, also called the Bloody Jack adventures. It is 1809, and the relations between the relatively new United States and the British Empire are once again starting to boil over. Jacky is in a fine fix now. One of her many enemies has entrapped her. He is making it appear that Jacky is a British spy trying to sneak off with strategic plans for Ft. McHenry near Baltimore. Once again on the lam, Jacky must pose as a governess for two small children, one of whom is the scourge of his household. Jacky's time spent sailing the high seas as both a pirate and a naval officer, will come in handy to tame this budding Black Beard. Jacky subsequently finds a temporary refuge in a traveling circus. This time she dons the disguise of a Russian tightrope walker. All the while, the authorities are hot on her trail, leading to a final race for freedom. The book is good fun, full of historical references and characters. Longtime readers of this series will be happy to find all the loose ends tied up. New readers will want to read Jacky's earlier adventures which are often referred to in the book.
