Summary:

In 1380, Venice is a world power. She is mistress of the sea, had checked the rising power of the Turks, conquered Constantinople, and successfully defied all the attacks of her jealous rivals. But now, her strength and splendor were put to the severest test by the combined powers of Hungary, Padua and Genoa. In an atmosphere of intrigue, crime and treachery, Francis Hammond displays a fine sense and manliness which carry him safely through the storm in the watery splendor of Venice.
