This ninth volume in Patrick O’Brian’s beloved Aubrey-Maturin series is full of suspense, taking on the role of both nautical adventure and spy story. The polished prose vividly evokes the nineteenth century atmosphere.

All of O’Brian’s strengths are on parade in this novel of action and intrigue, set partly in Malta, partly in the treacherous, pirate-infested waters of the Red Sea. While Captain Jack Aubrey worries about repairs to his ship, the HMS Surprise, Stephen Maturin assumes the center stage, for the stockyards and salons of Malta are alive with Napoleon’s agents and the admiralty’s intelligence network is compromised. Maturin’s cunning is the sole bulwark against sabotage of Aubrey’s daring mission.

Quotes & Awards

  • “O’Brian’s narrative…provides endlessly varying shocks and surprises—comic, grim, farcical and tragic. An essential of the truly gripping book for the narrative addict is the creation of a whole, solidly living world for the imagination to inhabit, and O’Brian does this with prodigal specificity and generosity.”

    A. S. Byatt 

  • “O’Brian is, first and foremost, a novelist. His are not cardboard characters, like those in most historical novels. They are real, complex people with idiosyncratic concerns and human foibles. You won’t understand every word…but it’s a mark of his genius, and of the spell he casts on readers of these books, that it doesn’t seem to matter.”

    Men’s Journal

  • “[A] cocktail of action and intrigue.”
