Unfortunately, Halfhyde's first command comes complete with a pompous flotilla captain in love with his own voice, and the looming threat of the irascible Admiral Prince Gorsinski. Cutting out the sailing-ship from amidst the Russian fleet and sneaking her back through the Narrows under the deadly batteries of the Turks and the Russians is the easy part. Facing Gorsinski's vengeance and the legendary wrath of the Romanovs is another matter!"--Publisher informattion

Old ships never die - not if Lieutenant St. Vincent Halfhyde and the irascible Captain Watkiss are in command. The old iron-clad Meridian steams south on her last journey under the British flag, on route to her new home in the Chilean Navy. Using the transfer of the ship as cover, Halfhyde and Watkiss are on a covert operation to protect British interests in South America from the encroachment of Germany. Soon Halfhyde has an added mission: he must help Detective Inspector Todhunter from the Metropolitan Police track down the traitorous civil servant, Russell Savory, who has escaped from prison and is assumed on the run for South America. It's a race against the Germans as Halfhyde uses intrigue and double-cross-and a few clandestine meetings in dark South American alleys - to turn events in Britain's favor and save the Empire once again

But things go from bad to worse once he steps foot on the island, as angry natives armed with guns assault the British sailors. The natives swear allegiance to a mysterious god named John Frumm, who has appeared among them, promising wealth and prosperity. As the island slides toward anarchy, Halfhyde struggles to rescue the beleaguered members of Her Majesty's Colonial Service and find the elusive Frumm before it is too late. Then Russian Admiral Prince Gorsinski shows up and the stakes soar even higher: Halfhyde must outwit his old nemesis to save the people of Zanatu and the trade routes of the Empire."--Jacket

Murder and chicanery involving a consignment of gold bullion stalk St Vincent Halfhyde as he takes the square-rigged ship Glen Hallandale on govenment service from Devonport dockyard to Cape Town. His "cargo" consists of a large draft of convicts from Dartmoor Prison, volunteers for the fight against the Boers in South Africa—volunteers who travel in chain gangs and under strong escort or armed warders in Halfhyde's hastily converted holds.The voyage proves a turbulent one through bad weather and the temper-inflaming heat and stickiness of the Doldrums. Vicious fighting develops when a party from a mysterious steam yacht attempts to board the Glen Hallandale and seeks to make contact with a gentleman convict. Conditions in the hold are appalling and the chain gangs are stirred to riot by their murderous ringleaders."Halfhyde fans will savor the late-Victorian details."—Publishers Weekly
