It's 1798, and Capt. Alan Lewrie and the crew of his frigate Proteus
have their work cut out for them. He has rashly vowed to uphold a friend's honor in a duel to the death, face the horridly unwelcome arrival of HM Government's Foreign Office agents, and, at last, engineer the showdown with his archfoe and nemesis, the hideous ogre of the French Revolution's Terror, that clever fiend Guillaume Choundas!
We know Lewrie can fight; but can he be a diplomat, too, in his dealing with the newly reborn United States Navy? For good or ill, Lewrie's in the "quag" up to his neck, this time. Can sword, pistol, and broadsides avail, or will words, low cunning, and Lewrie's irrepressible wit be the key to his victory and survival, as even the seas cry "Havoc"?
