    Whether on land or at sea, can Jack Aubrey stay one step ahead of his enemies?


    With the Treaty of Amiens, England is at peace. At least for now. . .


    Accompanied by his friend, ship's surgeon and spy Stephen Maturin, Captain Jack Aubrey has returned home to England and the life of a country gentleman. But their comfortable experience is cut short when Jack is made a pauper overnight. He flees to the continent, narrowly escaping debtor's prison, only to find himself a hunted fugitive from Napoleon's regime as, yet again, war looms.


    'Outstanding dialogue, characterisation, humour and a golden thread of romance.'
    KATIE FFORDE


    'The Aubrey-Maturin novels, by Patrick O'Brian, are so addictive that after I finish one I have to hide the next from myself for a little while in order to do anything else but read.'
    LOUISE ERDRICH
