But when a series of accidents puts the earl’s life in danger, he soon realises that the enemy is closer at hand. Before he can solve the mystery, however, Edwin finds he must face a double horror: not only a bloody battle, but one that will take place on the high seas.
As the bodies pile up, Edwin discovers that it is not just the French who are trying to kill him . . .
