The 11th Ramage book.
Poking around the Mediterranean, about the only British ship there, Ramage ends up taking a new-style telegraph station (not big swinging arms, but an array of shuttered windows) long enough to follow traffic for a while, and eventually to send his own message, to bring a convoy to be captured.
The structure of this one seems somewhat lumpy and unbalanced, but there are lots of good bits. No big payoff, though.
