In the Belly of the Bloodhound (Bloody Jack #4)

In the Belly of the Bloodhound: Being the Account of a Particularly Peculiar Adventure in the Life of Jacky Faber is the fourth Bloody Jack book by L.A. Meyer.

Jacky is back in the States. There is a bounty out on her head in England. Jacky thinks she can hide out at the Lawson Peabody School for Girls in Boston while things cool off.

But, of course, nothing goes according to plan. The girls of the school are kidnapped by a slave trader during a field trip. They are forced onto a ship and headed for Africa.

I love this series about a young woman who is determined and will allow nothing to get in her way. Meyer's books are historically accurate - except where Jacky causes some of the events we remember beginning differently - but he does it in plausible, entertaining ways.
