The capture of the merchant ship Cicely in the English Channel by the brilliant and ruthless Captain Morlaix changes the life of Jack Stone forever. From that moment in 1801 he is plunged into a desperate struggle, not just for his own survival, but to prevent the French striking a damaging blow to the heart of the British Establishment. The naval incidents are vividly described, and the historical detail is accurate. The author draws on his knowledge of the sea and of the Channel coasts to tell a compelling story of adventure and determination against the odds.
