Publishers Weekly
Absolute Honor C. C. Humphreys. St. Martin's/Dunne, $24.95 (320p) ISBN 978-0-312-35824-6
In the latest installment to the rollicking Jack Absolute series (after The Blooding of Jack Absolute), Humphreys borrows from Sheridan's The Rivals to tell a highly successful adventure story with a large dose of romance. After surviving the Battle of Quebec and a long winter in the New World, Jack is ready to return to England and rejoin the 16th Light Dragoons. Aboard the slave ship Sweet Eliza, Jack befriends Red Hugh McClune, an Irish grenadier with mysterious intentions. Once in England, Jack and McClune travel to Bath, where McClune's unattached cousin, the lovely Laetitia Fitzpatrick, piques Jack's fancy. Their courtship proceeds smoothly until Jake finds himself unwittingly lured by Laetitia into a seditious conspiracy, and when Jack's superiors dispatch him to go undercover in Rome, the truth about those he thought he knew becomes tragically apparent. With his way with words and swords, Jack proves once again to be a dynamic hero-an honorable spy with a soft spot for love-and a bangup leading man for what is fast becoming a rousing, must-read series. (Nov.)
Library Journal

In this third installment of Humphreys's 18th-century swashbuckling adventure (after Jack Absolute and The Blooding of Jack Absolute) about a character taken from Richard Sheridan's classic play, The Rivals, Jack Absolute returns to England in 1761 from the French-Indian Wars in America. On the voyage home, he befriends Hugh McClune, an Irish grenadier, and accompanies him to Bath, where Jack falls for Hugh's beautiful cousin and becomes a pawn in an assassination plot against King George. In order to clear his name and pursue the love who has stolen his heart, Jack is forced to sign up as a spy to hunt down Hugh. When he fails as a spy, Jack rejoins his battle regiment in Spain and takes his vengeance into the conflict. This exciting tale demonstrates Humphreys's vibrant sense of drama and adventure mixed with a veneration for historical and literary accuracy. This book (and series) is a strong selection for fans of historical fiction, especially those who enjoy Bernard Cornwell's "Sharpe" series. [For more military historical fiction, see also Randall Pfeffer's Southern Seahawk, reviewed on p. 58.-Ed.]

    Excellent historical thriller

    After barely surviving THE BLOODING OF JACK ABSOLUTE at the Battle of Quebec and nearly freezing to death in the wintry north of the New World, Jack wants to go home. England seems so warm and friendly suddenly even rejoining his unit the 16th Light Dragoons. --- On board the slave ship Sweet Eliza crossing the Atlantic, Jack meets and becomes friends with Irish grenadier soldier Red Hugh McClune. Upon reaching England, the two buddies journey to Bath, where Red introduces Jack to his beautiful cousin, Laetitia Fitzpatrick. Jack courts Laetitia, but her siren¿s lure leads him into the middle of traitorous activity, which becomes even more lucid to the stunned soldier when his superior officer sends him undercover to Rome to learn more about a seditious plot against his England. --- Jack¿s heart leads him astray as he must choose between ABSOLUTE HONOR and ABSOLUTE LOVE. As in the previous tales Jack makes the era seem real as this time he brings to life the 1760s when nefarious plots seem everywhere. Fans of the saga know absolutely that C. C. Humphrey¿s hero is the best however this time love and friendship may prove his undoing. --- Harriet Klausner
