All of Patrick 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 Aubrey worries about repairs to his ship, Stephen Maturin assumes the center stage; for the dockyards and saloons 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.

    " Another fine Aubrey Maturin yarn. Some nice twists and tales. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob | 4/9/2010

    " Another great book in the series. Not one of the absolute best, but definitely a fun read. Love the diving bell! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 4/2/2010

    " Another solid outing from the tales of Aubrey and Maturin. It looks like there will be less of an effort to contain storylines within one book, instead focusing more on longer, multi-book arcs. Still, the story is good and the pace is brisk. Can't wait for book ten! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jocelyn | 3/24/2010

    " Oh, no! A double agent keeps betraying Jack's position to the French, but Stephen can't figure out who it is! He is still clueless at the end of the book! Wake up, Stephen! It is so obvious!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aneel | 2/9/2010

    " This felt like half of a book. One of the major plotlines doesn't resolve at all. I'm sure it's covered in the next book of the series, but I was annoyed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Will | 2/8/2010

    " As usual, this book had beautiful writing. Unfortunately, it was tied to a very weak plot. Obviously, this book was written as a bridge, introducing characters and situations that will be fleshed out in the future. But, I was disappointed. Three stars for plot, four for writing. "
