Upon the Malabar Coast

Spring 1803 finds Captain Alexander Clay and his crew dispersed and struggling to adjust to a life of peace at home. Meanwhile, in the wider world, Europe is sliding back towards war. When news arrives that a powerful squadron has left Brest on a secret mission to the east commanded by the crack French Admiral Linois, Clay is given his old command back and is sent in pursuit. The Griffin arrives in Regency India, where treasure fleets worth millions ply the seas and France and Britain fight for influence among powerful local rulers. Soon Clay and his crew find themselves chasing shadows on the Malabar Coast, whose palm-fringed shore conceals many hidden dangers. In Linois, they are pitted against a cunning and allusive opponent. Will they be able to foil the French plans, before it is too late?
