Publisher: Penguin Export
1794 - the height of the French Revolution - and the Reign of Terror continues to ravage France. With no clear champion in the war, the British are desperate for a victory to restore confidence in their campaign. Captain Charles Hayden has orders to destroy a French frigate sailing from Le Havre and to gather intelligence from a royalist spy. On discovering French plans for an imminent attack on British soil, Hayden must return with haste to Portsmouth to give warning before it's too late. But the enemy have been lying in wait for him, and so begins a dangerous chase out into the Atlantic and into the midst of a powerful French squadron. Hayden and his men must use every skill they possess to evade capture. Failure will mean the invasion of England - and the guillotine for Hayden.
