Description
All of Patrick O'Brian's strengths are on parade in this ninth episode of action and intrigue in the Aubrey-Maturin series, 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: the dockyards 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. This is part of the series that began with Master and Commander, featuring Captain Jack Aubrey of the Royal Navy and ship's surgeon (and British spy) Dr. Stephen Maturin, who have been described as "better than Holmes and Watson, the equal of Quixote and Panza." (Los Angeles Times) Set in the time of Lord Nelson's Navy, their chronicles are at once stirring adventure tales, detailed historical fiction, and action thrillers par excellence.

"Taken as a whole, the Aubrey-Maturin novels are by a long shot the best things of their kind, so much better than the competition that comparisons long ago ceased to be relevant: they are uniquely excellent."NYTBR
