Halfhyde's Island Book 2:The Halfhyde Adventures

Fresh from his adventures at the Bight of Benin, Royal Navy Lieutenant St Vincent Halfhyde is assigned a second in command of the heavy cruiser Viceroy and ordered to a volcanic island which has recently surfaced in the north Pacific. The Admiralty hopes to claim the island for the Crown and establish an outpost there, but the hostile Russians have other ideas and the wily Japanese are prepared to carry out their own agenda. As the three naval powers converge, Halfhyde once again faces his arch-enemy Admiral Prince Gorsinski. The Prince will do anything to protect Russian interests and avenge his honor--even hang a British officer for murder! Can Halfhyde escape the noose, and the fury of a typhoon, to carry out his orders?
