    Summary

    And so now, at the age of thirty-one, a good ten years older than most of the debutantes to the world he had entered, Nigel was exploring what London had to offer and, thus far, had been really only an observer, and of course co-conspirator in the endless labyrinthine intrigues of Bim’s romantic affairs.

    Summary

    Seven years on, Ralph and Laurie have found a precarious refuge together in Gibraltar. But in the post-War world attitudes are hardening and positions becoming polarised, and they find themselves engaged in a new conflict, one in which they may not necessarily be on the same side. And then an unexpected visitor arrives.

    Summary

    A ramshackle trawler for his first command, an unsettlingly attractive sublieutenant, and danger in the fjords of Norway. For Lieutenant Ralph Lanyon it's only the first five months of 1940. But it's not a romantic story.
