"Cad," said Oscar, "we've got a bite."

"Yes, I felt the nibble."

"It's a good thing, sis, to locate a rogue."

"Indeed it is."

Average Rating of 2 from 1 reviews: **

The alternative title is more accurate, as this book centres firmly on ‘Dudie’ Dunn ,the male character, and Cad Metti makes only brief appearances - par for the course at the time, probably, but a bit misleading. The book reads as if it was originally serialised, so there’s a lot of repetition, and we’re reminded often that Cad Metti (usually referred to by her full name) is brave, resourceful, clever and beautiful, not to mention a mistress of disguise. The story itself is a bit dull, although there are some entertaining scenes.
