    Good entertaining book!

    Secrets are revealed...will Jacqui leave Bridges? After the colossal explosion of a zeppelin that killed her friend, an aristocrat who was allegedly defrauding prominent merchants in Bridges in concert with Frank Pagliacci, Jacqui is taken away to recover and grieve by her husband, Tony Spadros. Meanwhile, the Clubb Family, who own and control the Zeppelin depot, convene a coroner’s inquest to demand answers for the blast. Jacqui, who was never supposed to be at the zeppelin depot, is identified by witnesses and the Clubb Family inquisition is maliciously designed to focus squarely on her and the Spadros family. Jacqui never understood why Roy Spadros forced her at gunpoint to marry his son, Tony five years before. Now, she doesn’t understand why Tony, who swears he has “split” with Roy Spadros and loves her exclusively has her watched everywhere she goes. She knows it is not for her protection as Tony claims. However, the entangled web is woven ever tighter as she discovers that even her most trusted servants are spies…and not for Tony. But, then Tony has a secret; one he refuses to share with Jacqui. Jacqui and Joseph Kerr have a secret too; one neither Tony nor Roy can know about. She watches helplessly as Tony discovers her secrets one by one and ruins more of her friends. Without resources and bound between powerful men, she feels her only recourse is to run. Will she run into the arms of love, or into the arms of further manipulation and treachery? The Ace of Clubs escapes the endless maze of awkward social networking that plagued The Queen of Diamonds. Somehow, there is more at stake; more intrigue, more actually happening in The Ace of Clubs. There is much less focus on the characters and their backgrounds and much more focus on what they actually do and their motives for doing it. This is not to say the reader’s questions are all answered; far from it. But, readers can see more actions and consequences and there are intriguing mysteries brought into play, for example; who knew Tony had a brother? And what really happened to him? Readers are also allowed into Tony’s secret. Most probably suspected something like it from past books, but now we know. In my opinion, The Ace of Clubs is a better book than its predecessors. The Red Dog Conspiracy gets a bit deeper with each book as does the social pit in which Jacqui finds herself. Overall, this is an excellent read for action, conspiracy, steam-punk and mystery buffs of all ages.
