Halfhyde on the Yangtze
Far up the Yangtze River, the European presence in Chungking is threatened with rebellion and massacre by the Chinese. With the Russians and Germans poised to take advantage of lapsing British treaties, tactful intervention in rescuing the terrified civilians while keeping trade with the mandarins is essential.

This is hardly a suitable task for the bombastic Captain Watkiss, whose wildly aggressive tactics require skillful subversion by his long-suffering Lieutenant Halfhyde. See Details

Halfhyde Outward Bound
When Lieutenant St. Vincent Halfhyde finds himself unexpectedly placed on shore on the half-pay list of the Royal Navy (following the debacle of Captain Watkiss's accidental death chronicled in Halfhyde on Zanatu) he decides to broaden his experience at sea on a merchantman bound for Sydney. His ship, the Aysgarth Falls, has an unsavory crew consisting primarily, it seems, of villians on the run from the police. Bad weather and outbreaks of fighting in the fo'c'sle herald the dangers ahead.
