Summary

The seventh book in the Aubrey/Maturin series. Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin are ordered home by despatch vessel to bring the news of their latest victory to the government. But Maturin is a marked man for the havoc he has wrought in the French intelligence network in the New World, and the attentions of two privateers soon become menacing.
The chase that follows through the fogs and shallows of the Grand Banks is as thrilling, as tense, and as unexpected in its culmination as anything Patrick O'Brian has written. Then, among other things, follows a shipwreck and a particularly sinister internment in the notorious Temple Prison in Paris. Once again, the tigerish and fascinating Diana Villiers redresses the balance in this man's world of seamanship and war.

"The author, master of his period and of the techniques of ship under sail, keeps his story moving with panache and ingenuity." ( The Daily Telegraph)

THE SURGEON'S MATE

A very good story but if you can get the American edition read by Tim Piggot-Smith he really brings the story alive with his vast ability to make each character individual, so that you believe it is a whole cast of actors that are reading, - not just one
