The Rescue (1920) was one of Conrad's last novels to be published before his death, four years later. The plot follows the mislaid plans of protagonist Captain Tom Lingard, who, whilst on his way to help a native friend regain his land, falls in love with a married woman whose yacht he saves from floundering. Civil war rages between the native tribes of the Malay straits. Captain Tim Wingard sides with the Rajah Hassim. But as is the case with so much in the Far East, nothing is straightforward.
