Captain Nathaniel Drinkwater is ordered to Chesapeake Bay in a last attempt to heal the rift between London and Washington. But quite by chance, he discovers the first clue to a bold plan by which the United States could achieve the defeat of the Royal Navy and the collapse of the British cause. Putting aside thoughts of his reputation and commission, Drinkwater heads to the South Atlantic - and a climactic confrontation...
