Jacky Faber makes waves, even when docked in her adopted city of Boston to attend to the business of Faber Shipping Worldwide.

Thwarted at every turn by her enemies, Jacky is forced to acknowledge her shortcomings and possibly lose her beloved Jaimy Fletcher.In this new installment in the ever-popular Bloody Jack Adventures, will the impulsive Jacky Faber finally get her comeuppance?

This is a great book, but some of the old timey language was difficult to understand.
