Before setting out in the old ironclad, news arrives that a British Admiral has been detained in Valparaiso, and that the w i l y V i c e -Admiral von Merkatz is steaming full ahead in that direction. The Meridian hastily leaves port in pursuit, but while she is still in British waters, Detective Inspector Todhunter from the Metropolitan Police is put aboard, and ano th er t as k i s ad de d to Halfhyde's mission: to track down Todhunter's old enemy Sir Russell Savory, top civil servant turned traitor, who has escaped from prison and is suspected of being in league with von Merkatz.
