Under the command of Captain Charles Hayden, Royal Navy frigate HMS Themis is sent to counter the threat of the French forces in the West Indies. In the middle of the vast Atlantic, Hayden discovers two Spanish noblemen, castaway in a ships boat - a stroke of almost impossible good fortune. The Spaniards explanation for their plight seems so improbable that Haydens officers suspect them of being criminals or even spies. But they have secrets far more shocking than that - secrets which will haunt Hayden in his new posting.
Upon reaching the Barbados station, Hayden finds himself under the command of the vainglorious Sir William Jones, an impetuous and foolhardy officer. Refusing orders will cost Hayden his command. Accepting them might cost him his ship and crew.
Until the Sea Shall Give Up Her Dead is the brilliant fourth tale in the epic maritime adventures of Charles Hayden. A masterpiece already rivaling the stories of Bernard Cornwell and Patrick OBrian.
