Hornet was a cursed ship. Distrust of the fever-laden Hornet and the young American born Captain are an ill-fit to the fleet of Admiral Hyde Parker and Admiral Rowley. Yet, their communications are hampered by a small squadron of Spanish and Hornet is given the task of running the gauntlet. Trapped and outgunned he must use his wits to escape and keep the dispatches he is carrying from falling into the hands of the Spanish. From Charles Town to Martinique Donland faces storms, treachery and envy.
