Sailing to Australia in the early years of the nineteenth century, Edmund Talbot keeps a journal to amuse his godfather back in England. Full of wit and disdain, he records the mounting tensions on the ancient, sinking warship where officers, sailors, soldiers and emigrants jostle in the cramped spaces below decks.

Lord of the Flies on the high seas. Written as the protagonist's journal, it starts like a simple social comedy of manners but in fact it is dark story with twists in the outcome.
