NOTES

Kydd is offered a new command but that ship is still under construction, so he decides to look up one of his old naval friends and enjoy some of the pleasures of London. This is cut short when he is summoned to Portsmouth to bear witness at the trial of Sir Home Popham for his actions at Cape Town and Buenos Aires. When his personal feelings about the way his old commander was treated become public, Kydd finds himself in hot water with the Admiralty.

On board he faces numerous challenges from a hostile and dejected crew, still under a malign influence
