Hal turned to Ned Tyler. ‘Bring the ship round. Lay her on the other tack. Course to clear Dahlak Island, and then south for the Bab El Mandeb. Full and by, Mr Tyler.’

‘Full and by it is, Captain.’ Ned grinned widely and winked at Big Daniel.

Golden Bough
ran out to meet the dawn, Hal stood tall on her quarterdeck, his left hand resting lightly on the sapphire in the pommel of the Neptune sword. With his other arm he
reached out and drew Judith Nazet closer to him. She came willingly.
