(From the publisher):
In the aftermath of a typhoon, Captain Nathaniel Drinkwater brings His Britannic Majesty's frigate Patrician
into the shelter of the Pearl River on the China coast. Seeking the means to refit, he in unwittingly entangled on bizarre events following the British occupation of Macao and Admiral Drury's attack on Canton.
Initially relieved to be assigned the straightfoward duty of a convoy escort to Penang, Captain Drinkwater quickly discovers that the convoy's cargo contains a mysterious quantity of silver and a single passenger. An apparently routine task is suddenly complicated by the resurrection of an old, embittered hatred, and Captain Drinkwater finds himself drawn inexorably by treachery, greed, perversity, and cruelty towards a climactic rendezvous in the remote rain forest of Borneo.
