(From the publisher):
For a friendless, penniless lieutenant like George Abercrombie Fox, it offered the one real hope of advancement.
Without a rise in rank for more years than he cared to think, the boredom and stultifying routine of Blockade Duty gave little chance of Prize Money.
But chance did not always play Fox false. Suddenly, there was action - bloody and savage. On the one hand lay a hideous death or maiming, and on the other hand - glory!
