Jack of All Trades is campy tale of an undercover American secret agent Jack Stiles working under the direct order of the President of the United States, Thomas Jefferson. His objective is to thwart the operations of the forces of Napoleon Bonaparte on the remote island of Pulau Pulau. To help with his endeavors, Jack teams up with a British operative already established in the area. She, Emilia Rothschild, is a shipping and export mogul with an unbelievable imagination and the ability to take that imagination and invent some of the most astounding devises that will aid her and Jack in stopping the oncoming onslaught of Napoleon.
Jack, to further help their mission and cause, starts to take on the identity of a local folk hero, The Daring Dragoon. As the Dragoon, Jack is able to be a thorn in the side of Napoleon and Pulau Pulau’s appointed leader, Governor Croque, while maintaining his cover as Emilia’s assistant. If their cover was blown, it would mean certain doom for both of them. Throughout there time on that tropical island, Jack and Emilia will also come into contact with some of the most famous and important people of the time. Some of whom are nothing like what they are made out to be in stories and legends.
