Kiel Harbour, 1945 ... The war in Europe is at an end. But for Lieutenant Vere Marriott and the men of MGB 801, moored amid a nightmare of devastation, it is an uneasy, unsettled peace. New assignments ashore and afloat mean fresh tensions and conflicting emotions. For some, glory now takes second place to profit. For others, revenge at last seems within their grasp. No one is shooting at Marriott now. But dangers come thick and fast - from confrontation with the Russians to his feelings for Fräulein Geghin. There is more to victory than survival.
