Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin, veterans now of many
battles, return in this novel to the seas where they first sailed as shipmates.
But Jack is now senior captain commanding a line-of-battleship in the Royal
Navy’s blockage of Toulon, and this is a longer, harder, colder war than the
dashing frigate action of his early days. A sudden turn of events takes him and
Stephen off on a hazardous mission to the Greek Islands, where all his old
skills of seamanship and his proverbial luck when fighting against all odds
come triumphantly into their own.
