When commander Kit Killigrew of the Royal Navy is framed for murder by his old foe, the Russian Colonel Nekrasoff, he must plunge into the murky depths of the Victorian underworld in a desperate attempt to escape the hangman’s noose. Before long, he is thrust on an undercover mission to St. Petersburg to track down a missing British engineer and to discover the whereabouts of his secret weapon, the Sea Devil. But in the world of espionage, nothing is ever what it seems, and Killigrew must pit his wits against ruthless secret policemen and beautiful but treacherous women before the trail leads him to a final confrontation in his most explosive adventure yet.
