July, 1793. Since being press-ganged into service in King George's Navy, John Pearce has endured a whirlwind few months of wild storms and bitter battles with the enemy. When the trio of Pearce's friends, the Pelicans, are shipped off to the Mediterranean, he vows to liberate the men who have stuck by him through thick and thin. When they are shipped off to the Mediterranean, Pearce vows to liberate the men who have stuck by him through thick and thin. But with help being withheld by all higher powers, he is obliged to embark on a dangerous mission before he can free his friends: at stake, the whole British position in the Mediterranean.
