From the PublisherHumphreys has created a rambunctious but lovable hero who continue[s] to win fans with each new adventure.
Suave, sexy, and superhuman, Jack could be an eighteenth-century prototype for James Bond... Much derring-do, told with panache.
C.C. Humphreys takes you into a swashbuckling world you won't want to leave.
The dialogue is especially well-done, full of wit and style that feels true to the period. There is enough period detail to help draw the reader into the time but not so much as to be distracting. Welcome and well-done back story for Humphreys' likably roguish character.

The entire cast of characters are colorful and interesting, from Jack to the miscreants we encounter along the way. The heroes are strong and admirable, and the villains are corrupt to the core. This makes for highly enjoyable storytelling." - The Calico Critic
