Synopsis

Synopsis

Captain Jack Aubrey, R.N., arrives in the Dutch East Indies to find himself appointed to the command of the fastest and best-armed frigate in the navy. He and his friend Stephen Maturin take passage for England in a dispatch vessel. But the War of 1812 breaks out while they are en route. Bloody actions precipitate them both into new and unexpected scenes where Stephen's past activities as a secret agent return on him with a vengeance.

"They're funny, they're exciting, they're informative. There are legions of us who gladly ship out time and time and time again under Captain Aubrey." –The New Yorker
