At the opening of a voyage filled with disaster and delight, Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin are in pursuit of a privateer sailing under American colours through the Great South Sea. Stephen's objective is to set the revolutionary tinder of South America ablaze to relieve the pressure on the British government which has blundered into war with the young and uncomfortably vigorous United States. The shock and barbarity of hand-to-hand fighting are sharpened by O'Brian's exact sense of period, his eye for landscape and his feel for a ship under sail.

Another brilliant episode
highly recommended, this work continues to story in the same depth and detail that makes this a stand-out piece by a legendary author
from start to finish the pace is relentless and told with a magnificence which has me re running it so as not to lose a detail.
flow and pronunciation is impeccable the Latin does not phase him and the characterisation makes following the story a delight
The most compelling sea drama ever
