Description
Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin, veterans of many battles, return to the seas where they first sailed as shipmates in this eighth naval adventure in Patrick O'Brian's classic series. But Jack is now a senior Captain commanding a line-of-battle ship, sent out to reinforce the squadron blockading 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. All his old skills of seamanship, and his uncanny luck when fighting against the odds, come triumphantly into their own. The book ends with a naval action as fierce and thrilling as any in the series.

"Cemented over the years and across the seven seas by good writing and good humor, the friendship between surgeon and intelligence agent Maturin and that lion-in-action and ass ashore, Jack Aubrey, may yet rank with Athos-D'Artagnan or Holmes-Watson as part of the permanent literature of adventure."Observer (London)
