‘In Stockwin’s hands the sea story will continue to entrance readers across the world’ – Guardian

Captain Sir Thomas Kydd’s part in Britain’s doomed occupation of Buenos Aires has put him on the wrong side of some powerful men at the Admiralty. He is given a poisoned commission that some hope will destroy his career: a recently mutinied ship.

But enemies aboard and on the high seas are just the start of the problem. Soon he will have to take his untested and untrustworthy crew into the Baltic where they will get entangled with Napoleon’s invasion of Prussia. With the stakes desperate, the task seemingly impossible and the French implacable, Kydd could return home once more a hero – or find himself facing a court martial.
