It is 1794, the height of the French Revolution, and Charles Hayden sets off aboard the ill-fated HMS Themis with orders to destroy a French frigate sailing from Le Havre.
But the enemy has been lying in wait for him, and so begins a dangerous chase out into the Atlantic, and into the clutches of a powerful French squadron.
