The continuing adventures of Jack Absolute made for highly entertaining reading. The opening scene of the novel finds Jack in Newport, Rhode Island, parting from the Quaker widow in whose arms he's whiled away the winter months. He appears to have become restless and is eager to board ship for England. Rowing to the ship he rescues a naked swimmer who turns out to be fellow passenger Red Hugh McClune. Jack and the Irishman soon become fast friends. At sea there is an encounter with privateers, a...more

Jack Absolute does it again! I am a little confused about the order of these books though. I didn't realize this one existed and it's been a few years since I read Jack Absoute and Blooding of J.A, so I've lost a bit of the momentum. Humphreys does a good job at describing military and espionage adventure even for those who don't typically like kind of genre. Very accessible and fun!

I received this book through Goodreads for honest review.
Although this period of history was interesting and not the usual story, I found the hero difficult to like. For all the emphasis on his honor it was at times at his convenience. Also the author has a low opinion of most of the women in this story which also makes this an unsympathetic character."
I can give only four star.

finally got around to reading my xmas present, and what a plonkeer I was..the story had me gripped from start to finish, had difficulties putting it down, well written and draws you in from the start. now looking for the rest of the series, definitely up with Wilber Smith and John Grisham for me superb author.
Howard Anders
Excellent. Interesting view of the potential Jacobite threat to the English throne in the mid-18th Century, along with romance, war, duels of honor. A lot of action packed into a bit more than 300 pages. I anxiously await the next volume in the series.

Another great swashbuckling adventure in the Jack Absolute series. Though, I wish the author would hurry up and give us a proper sequel to the first book. These prequels are great but I am still waitng to close off the cliffhanger
I liked this one, but it wasn't as good as the first two. I like Absolute better when he is spying and fighting rather than wooing the ladies. I understand why he had to do it for the novel's plot, but I it's not my favorite.
This book was a fantastic ending of the Jack Absolute series. Jack`s many scrapes entertain throughout, and the only negative aspect is his constant obsession with women. Altogether, a well rounded, page-turner.
What a great book and series. Stands up tp Flashman, Sharpe, Aubery, etc. The Series starts with the American Revolution, the next 2 books fill in the back story.

Recommended. I've enjoyed all 3 of this series.
