(From the publisher):
In Nelson's day the punishments inflicted by the Royal Navy were notoriously brutal and barbaric.
George Abercrombie Fox, ruthless and ambitious hero of Treasure and Blood For Breakfast, must now face the deadly consequences of his rapacious search for gold.
The court could order him hanged from the highest yardarm in the Fleet. But Fox would never give in. Still a lieutenant at thirty four he had his own bitter, vengeful plans to deal with the Navy!
The murderous crash of broadsides and the reek of battle smoke await Fox in Adam Hardy's suspense-filled novel of an unconventional hero who transcends heroism.
