In the aftermath of a typhoon Captain Nathaniel Drinkwater brings His Britannic Majesty's frigate Patrician into the shelter of the Pearl River on the China coast. The battered ship has suffered losses among her company and is overcrowded by the unwanted addition of Russian prisoners. Seeking the means to refit, Captain Drinkwater finds himself caught up in the bizarre events following the British occupation of Macao and Admiral Drury's halfhearted attack on Canton. As negotiations between the British and Chinese grind to a stalemate, Drinkwater is relieved to be assigned the straightforward duty of a convoy escort to Penang. Part of the convoy's cargo consists of a mysterious quantity of silver specie, and with this comes a passenger.For Drinkwater this apparently routine task is suddenly complicated by the resurrection of an old, embittered and unabated hatred. Spite, treachery, greed, perversity and cruelty lead to a climactic encounter in the remote tropical rain forest of Borneo. N° de ref. de la librería 28373
