Publisher's Summary

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.

Great story, great narration, missing a few words

Same quality as the previous volumes in the series. I’d take off half a star as there is a name missing about two-thirds into the book. The name is repeated 2 or 3 times during a conversation with Jack and each time the name is omitted as if censored. One imagines that a difficult pronunciation required another try but was later forgotten.
Still top fare though in this wonderful series.
