Murder and chicanery involving a consignment of gold bullion stalk St Vincent Halfhyde as he takes the square-rigged ship 'Glen Halladale' on government service from Devonport dockyard to Cape Town.His 'cargo' consists of a large draft of convicts from Dartmoor Prison,volunteers to serve as labour battalions to fight against the Boers in South Africa - volunteers who travel in chain gangs and under strong escort of armed warders in Halfhyde's hastily converted holds.
The voyage proves a turbulent one through bad weather and the temper-inflaming heat and stickiness of the Doldrums.Vicious fighting develops when a party from a mysterious and unwelcome steam yacht attempts to board the 'Glen Halladale' and seeks to make contact with a gentleman convict.Conditions in the hold are appalling and the chain gangs are stirred to mutiny by their murderous ringleaders.
