Booklist - 09/02/2012 The tenth book in the Bloody Jack Adventures series takes 17-year-old Jacky to Portugal and Spain, where she spies for the British during the Peninsular War. After taking part in a horrific battle, she makes her way to Madrid, where artist Francisco Goya employs her as a model. Passing on intelligence gained at the Spanish court, she is tortured by the Inquisition. Whether flirting with men or with death, irrepressible Jacky remains a shining star within an unusually diverse cast of characters, including robbers, revolutionaries, soldiers, and gypsies. A colorful addition to Jacky’s wildly improbable but wonderfully entertaining adventures. - Copyright 2012 Booklist.
