AN ILLUSTRATED NOVEL-(with 17 interior drawings).
1805-The British man-of-war HMS Vanguard disappears mysteriously with all hands in a fiery explosion returning to Portsmouth harbor after the Battle of Trafalgar. For nearly two centuries the warship’s loss provides an unsolvable riddle for maritime historians and scholars.
Now, the crew of the SS Reprise, an American oceanographic and salvage ship, succeed in locating and orchestrating the daring recovery of the Vanguard’s stern. Alan Ward, the operator of the Reprise’s unmanned submersibles, stumbles upon the frightening truth and the horror that engulfed the Vanguard’s crew as they fell victim to a deadly siren, a vampiresa, plaguing their vessel.
