Part 3 of the 4-part "Girl on Girl." When questions of loyalty arise from the all-female crew of The Whale, Yorick must decide whether his allegiances lie with his old companions or his new mate, who happens to be captain of the potentially mutinous ship.
The book opens with a brief origin story about the captain of the ship. It tells how she grew the opium in America and decided to sell it to other countries. The scene returns to the brig and we find the story is being told by the spy, to Dr. Mann. That is when one of the ships crew pulls a gun on Dr. Mann and admits it. They have also captured 355 and are about to put her into a cell also. Meanwhile in the captains quarters, the captain and Yorrick are about to "get Busy" when there is an alert. The sonar has picked up the Australian Sub. The captain leaves her quarters, but soon an escaped 355 Dr. Mann and Rose ( the spy ) come in. Before they find weapons though, the captain returns with a rather large gun herself. She has ordered depth charges dropped onto the sub, and tries to explain that her drug running is actually helping the world. When a torpedo from the sub hits the ship, 355 disarms the captain, and the ship begins to sink.
