Review:

'He writes with humour, irony and an eye for those telling details that give you a man in a moment.' (Sunday Times)

'Few books so entertaining and readable are based on such strong research and grasp of human nature. One moment you laugh aloud at comedy rooted in character, and the next, storming adventure or danger grips you by the throat ...' (The Daily Mail)

'What is so gripping about O’Brian’s novels is the completeness with which he invents a world which is our own and not our own ... O’Brian is a brilliant observer.' (Evening Standard)

Book Description:

The 15th instalment of this astonishing series – one of the most highly praised works in contemporary fiction.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Patrick O Brian s Aubrey-Maturin tales are widely acknowledged to be the greatest series of historical novels ever written. To commemorate the 40th anniversary of their beginning, with Master and Commander, these evocative stories are being re-issued in paperback with smart new livery. This is the fifteenth book in the series. All the elements that have made Patrick O Brian s astonishing series one of the most highly praised works in contemporary fiction are here in Clarissa Oakes - the narrative grip, the impeccable ear for dialogue, the humour and the unsurpassed capacity to create and recreate a rich and true friendship between two men in the late eighteenth-century. Captain Jack Aubrey sails away from the hated Australian prison colonies in his favourite vessel the Surprise, pondering on middle age and sexual frustration. He soon becomes aware that he is out of touch with the mood of his ship: to his astonishment he finds that in spite of a lifetime s experience he does not know what the foremost hands or even his own officers are thinking. They know, as he does not, that the Surprise has a stranger aboard: and what they, for their part, do not know is that the stranger is potentially as dangerous as a light in the powder magazine itself.
