As a soldier of fortune, Alan Payne was not unaccustomed to danger and that President Cardona should have entrusted him with the mission was a tribute to his character, but there were others in the junta who did not agree with Cardona.

In this company, living in such close quarters, there was inevitably a certain amount of friction. But human passions would prove insignificant by comparison when the indescribable fury of the storm hit

The gunners on the Golden Ray were a strangely assorted bunch. The seamen were more of a type, but the soldiers seconded to the job could hardly have differed more from one another. There was the professional Sergeant Willis, in love with his job; Vernon the intellectual and Miller the tragic communistic misfit, who found his Russian Mecca not quite what he expected. The background and past of each character in the book are skillfully woven into the narrative of the ordeal at sea in both directions and experiences on Russian soil at Murmansk
