The compelling new historical naval adventure from a master of
maritime storytelling. 1796: Nathan Peake, captain of the frigate
Unicorn is sent with a small squadron into the Adriatic to help
bring Venice into an Italian alliance against the French. He
establishes a British naval presence, harrying the French corsairs
that swarm out of Ancona in Italy. While Nathan confronts the
politics of 'intrigue, poison and the stiletto' in Venice, his
mission is further complicated by the arrival of Napoleon
Bonaparte's aide de camp, Junot. Recognising Nathan as the
'American' who saved Bonaparte's life in Paris, Junot invites him
to army headquarters where he unwillingly joins the French in a
victorious battle against the Austrians. Meanwhile, in Venice,
French troops move into the city and a new revolutionary government
takes power. Nathan learns that Bonaparte is negotiating a peace
deal with the Austrians - Britain's only remaining ally. Worse, the
Spanish are about to ally with the French. Nathan returns to the
Unicorn and rejoins Nelson for the decisive Battle of St Vincent
against the entire Spanish fleet.
