Summary

The eleventh book in the Aubrey/Maturin series. The Reverse of the Medal is in all respects an unconventional naval tale. Jack Aubrey returns from his duties protecting whalers off South America and is persuaded by a casual acquaintance to make investments in the City on the strength of supposedly certain information. From there he is led into the half worlds of the London criminal underground and of government espionage, the province of his friend, Stephen Maturin, on whom alone he can rely.
Those who are already devoted fans of Patrick O'Brian will find here all the brilliance of characterisation and sparkle of dialogue which they have come to expect. For those who listen to him for the first time there will be the pleasure of discovering, quite unexpectedly, a novelist of unique character.
For Adults Only. Must be 18 years of age to purchase.

Part way there

While I enjoyed the book enormously, it seems to finish mid story!
I now need to find out what the next story in the saga is to continue the tale.
Would be better if Audible carried them in some form of numerical order.
