Captain Lord Ramage and the Calypso return from Devil's Island, but Ramage's new wife, Sarah, is missing. The captain would like nothing better than to sail home immediately, but instead he is ordered to shepherd a lumbering convoy of merchant ships back to England. On the way, bizarre events lead him to a full court martial in Plymouth, presided over by his old nemesis, Rear-Admiral Goddard. Ramage must clear his name - or face a sentence of death!

Pope really came up with some strange twists in this one, that took a while to figure out. The strange twists include a crazy captain, and family problems. I enjoy more naval action than this one had, nevertheless, it took a while to figure where it was headed. Crossley does another superb job at narration.
