February 1813: As American privateers pick off British and Canadian ships in the wake of the War of 1812, Admiral Sir Richard Bolitho returns to Halifax to defend Crown property. In the cold waters off Nova Scotia, he fights fruitless skirmishes with men of the frontier, all the while longing for peace. While the Admiral's enemies pull strings behind the scenes to bring him down, his nephew Adam rises to the grueling challenges of command.
