Publisher's Summary

Jack Aubrey's long service is at last rewarded: he is promoted to the rank of Commodore and given a squadron of ships to command. His mission is twofold: to make a large dent in the slave trade off the coast of Africa and, on his return, to intercept a French fleet set for Bantry Bay with a cargo of weapons for the disaffected among the Irish. Invention and surprise follow at every turn in this tale of 19th-century seamanship, as rich, as compelling, and as masterly as any of its predecessors.

Another good yarn

Robert Hardy does it again by bringing Aubrey and his friends really to life. It is infectious and has already led me onto buying another in the series. Do try these - and get lost in his world...
