Three years ago in 1867, Julia Jackson was a well to do young woman from Boston whose fiancĂ©, Jonathon, was killed right before her eyes. Obsessed with finding the killer, a man whose face she saw only in a flash as he walked up and shot Jonathon, she leaves her family and her life behind. She starts a new life as ‘Jacks’ Jackson—a cigar smoking, dead eye, female Pinkerton agent…pretending to be a man.

Now Allan Pinkerton needs Jacks to find the man who kidnapped the wife and son of a railroad official, David Boyd. Their only clues are the severed finger from the man’s wife, complete with wedding ring, and a map of the Qualla boundary, the Cherokee reservation in North Carolina.

Jacks doesn’t like the way the whole thing sounds from the beginning. David Boyd isn’t important enough to target for a kidnapping. And why travel so far with two hostages?

But Pinkerton tells her that he believes the man responsible for the kidnapping worked with Jonathon’s murderer in a train robbery five years ago. Jacks agrees to go after the kidnapper with hopes of catching him before he can reach his home grounds.

Pinkerton insists that Jacks bring three men with her—Boyd, her new partner, and a Cherokee guide named Running Wolf, who’s always watching her, like he’s trying to figure it out.

Can Jacks catch the kidnapper with her secret—and her life—intact?

This brand new novel is fast- paced and action filled. A great cast of characters and a gripping story line. You will be hooked from the start. I loved this book. Once I started reading it I couldn't stop.I am looking forward to what Jacks will do next.

  1. Sounds like a promising start to a new series. I have been enjoying these forays into historical mysteries.

  2. Thanks for the review! Sounds good!

  3. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a note. We really appreciate it.

  4. I think the Pinkerton tie-in sounds interesting.

  5. This sounds fascinating, especially inclusion of Pinkerton (before they had their team of ladies working for them). much less how hard it would be for her to pretend to be a guy.

  6. I'm sure this is a great read. Would really enjoy reading. Love books from the Lavene's. Great giveaway, thanks.
