In the early 1800s, the British Navy stands as the only bulwark against the militant fanaticism of Napoleonic France. Jack Aubrey, a brilliant and experienced officer, has been struck off the list of post-captains for a crime he has not committed. His old friend, Stephen Maturin, usually acting as the ship's surgeon to cover his activities on behalf of British intelligence, has bought for Aubrey his old ship, the Surprise, to command as a privateer. Together they sail on a desperate mission against the French, which, if successful, may redeem Aubrey from the private hell of his disgrace.

In this 12th installment of the beloved Aubrey-Maturin series, Patrick O'Brian has created another tale of great narrative power.

    " Jack Aubrey, though dishonored in the Royal Navy, manages to find action at sea as a privateer in his old ship the Surprise. Meanwhile, Maturin struggles to deal with newfound wealth, his troubled marriage, and his addiction to laudanum. Lots of character growth for both of them, and it's sweet to watch them support each other even though their separate lives aren't going so well. "

    " Another absolutely brilliant chapter in the Aubrey/Maturin saga. I worship Patrick O'Brian for his delightful characters, his seamless sea action, his humorous plot-developments and for how much he has made me love these guys. "

    " The entire series is amazing. O'Brian's writing is a delight to read and while I could quibble over 4.5 stars or 5 per each volume I'm rating it across their totality. "

    " Felt there was more freedom for Aubrey in this book, although he seemed more dour not his usual happy self. Do enjoy reading the further adventures of the two men. "
