The Jacq of Spades - Part 1 of the Red Dog Conspiracy

Patricia Loofbourrow

From NY Times and USA Today bestselling author Patricia Loofbourrow ... "... a story that is almost irresistible." SciFi and Scary Kidnapping. Murder. Betrayal. Can you ever truly hide from your past? In a far future US, the once-beautiful domed neo-Victorian city of Bridges is now split between four crime families in an uneasy cease-fire. Social disparity increasing and its steam-driven infrastructure failing, a new faction is on the rise: the Red Dogs. 22 year old Jacqueline Spadros was kidnapped from her mother's brothel and sold to the Spadros syndicate ten years ago. The murder of her best friend Air that night as he tried to save her from them haunts her nightmares. Now unwillingly married to one of the city's biggest drug lords, she finds moments of freedom in a small-time private eye business, which she hides in fear of her sadistic father-in-law. Air's little brother disappears off his back porch and the Red Dogs are framed for it. With the help of a mysterious gentleman investigator hired by the Red Dogs to learn the truth, Jacqui pushes her abilities to their limits in hope of rescuing the child before the kidnapper disposes of him. Dark, gritty, multi-layered Victorian-inspired detective neo-noir that keeps the reader guessing to the very end. What readers say about The Jacq of Spades: "... a world of family intrigue combined with feuding households across the four quadrants of Bridges..." June Lorraine Roberts, Murder In Common "This was the first steampunk book that I've read that I actually really loved." Gabby's Honest Book Reviews "... an intriguing and compelling read ..." Diana Johnson "... a first-rate mystery." Clabe Polk Mystery & Adventure "For rich pageantry and a complex culture navigated by a character who feels she’s balanced on the edge between the slums of the Pot and the extravagance of the families, The Jacq of Spades is a hands-down success." Margaret Fisk, Tales To Tide You Over "Mobsters, corrupt police and a novice private detective. This story was amazing." Allie'
