1798, Portsmouth, home of the Royal Navy. Giles Courtenay is about to take command of a new, powerful frigate. After narrowly escaping an attempt on his life, he takes command and proceeds to blockade duty off France before being ordered to effect the rescue of an important official and his daughter (whom he met in his last adventure APHRODITE'S QUEST) from the Spanish. He makes an audacious plan and rescues them. On delivering them to Gibraltar, he is ordered to join Nelson's Fleet trying to seek out French intentions in the Mediterranean. He gathers vital intelligence and is on the edge of the Battle of the Nile, taking part afterwards in the capture of some French ships fleeing the battle.
