So when a profitable, if legally dubious, proposition is put to him by an old naval comrade in arms, Vivian is willing to listen.But what starts out as a harmless adventure soon turns into something altogether more sinister. And Vivian finds himself trapped in a treacherous web of violence and crime, dangerously torn between his stubborn sense of past loyalties and his duty to a society he has always despised.
