and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160; Inconceivable? Yes! The truth is sheand#8217;s secretly forced to pose as an American dancer behind enemy lines in Paris, where she entices a French general into revealing military secretsand#151;all to save her dear friends.

In this sixth installment of the Bloody Jack Adventures series, love and war collide as the irrepressible Jacky Faber sets off on a daring adventure she vowed she'd never take.
A school outing goes awry as Jacky and her classmates are abducted and forced into the hold of the Bloodhound, a ship bound for the slave markets on the Barbary Coast. All of Jackys ingenuity, determination, and plain old good luck will be put to the test as she rallies her delicate classmates to fight together and become their own rescuers.
