a capture for the reader from beginning to end
September, 1800 into 1801, Richard Bolitho, now a Rear Admiral, is in charge of another small squadron. This time he is assigned to blockade duty around Denmark and the entrance to the Baltic under the command of an admiral whose brother, Bolitho's brother killed many years ago in a duel. There are more efforts to discredit Bolitho as well as more diplomatic and such things for him to deal with resulting in more complications for Bolitho who is more fighter than diplomat.

As usual, there is naval
Bolitho, now a rear-admiral, must deal with the repercussions of his brother's past actions, explain the truth to his nephew, and deal with Russia's growing aggressive stances.
