Summary (From the publisher):

H.M.S. Wagtail: river gunboat. A ship seemingly at the end of her useful life, lying in the Hong Kong dockyard, awaiting the last summons to the breaker's yard.

Commander Justin Rolfe, also seemingly at the end of his useful Naval life. An embittered man, brooding and angry from a court-martial verdict.

Then the offshore island of Santu is threatened with invasion from the Chinese mainland. On the island: a small British community that must be brought out.

Commander Rolfe and the Wagtail are ordered to the island. The job is regarded with sullen resentment by his crew, but to Rolfe, and even the ship, it is a job that offers the chance of a reprieve and a restoration of self respect.
