The seventeenth book in the Aubrey/Maturin series.Jack Aubrey's long service is at last rewarded: he is promoted to the rank of Commodore and given a squadron of ships to command. His mission is twofold: to make a large dent in the slave trade off the coast of Africa and, on his return, to intercept a French fleet set for Bantry Bay with a cargo of weapons for the disaffected among the Irish. Invention and surprise follow at every turn in this tale of 19th-century seamanship, as rich, as compelling, and as masterly as any of its predecessors.More
"One of the most brilliantly sustained pieces of historical fictional writing this century." (Spectator)
