Hornblower is given a dangerous mission to deliver an emigre French nobleman to a secret rendezvous near Brest while coping with enemy agents in his own ranks.
Tony Haygarth (Master Prowse) starred as Marshal Pot-au-Feu in Sharpe's Enemy (1994) and Sir Willoughby Parfitt in Sharpe's Justice (1997) also set during the Napoleonic Wars.
Commander Horatio Hornblower:
Enjoy your meal, Wolfe. Once Admiral Pellew is done, you won't be dining on Breton lobster.
Wolfe: When we're done, Breton lobster will be dining on Admiral Pellew.
Admiral Pellew reminds Hornblower that; "In time of war a captain may not sleep out of his ship". The statement is only partially correct. This rule applied only to the Channel Fleet (of which Pellew is the commander in the story).
