The first in a series of adventures spanning the sixty-year career of an officer in Queen Victoria’s merchant navy

A tough life full of incident awaits Tom Chatto when, at the age of seventeen, he embarks upon his first voyage under sail. Queen Victoria’s empire is growing fast and the good ship Pass of Drumochter is bound for the seven seas to trade the empire’s goods.
But the glamour soon falls from Tom’s eyes when he finds himself the unwitting eye-witness to a foul murder. Earning his master’s ticket is going to be as much about learning to cope with the terrifying ne’er-do-wells on board ship as it is about sails and navigation.
