About this title
The New York Times Book Review called the bestselling Patrick O'Brian series of nautical adventures "The best historical novels ever written."
This seventeenth novel in the Aubrey Maturin series has been hailed as the best of the best. In Commodore join Captain Jack Aubrey and secret agent Stephen Maturin in their daring service to Her Majesty's Navy—and take a dramatic tour of their home-front adventures as well.
After several installments of gallivanting around the South Seas, Aubrey and Maturin return home to England, where the surgeon-cum-intelligence-agent discovers that his wife has disappeared. As if such a domestic crisis weren't enough, the intrepid pair are also dispatched to the Gulf of Guinea (to suppress the slave trade) and to Ireland (to rebuff an impending French invasion.) O'Brian's stunning range, coupled with his mind-bending command of minutiae, explain why James Hamilton-Paterson has called him "the Homer of the Napoleonic Wars."
