Publisher's Summary

The espionage activities of cunning ship's surgeon Stephen Maturin have kept him at odds with the most important French agent in the Mediterranean, Lesueur, a man with a long memory and a taste for revenge. When that revenge takes the shape of the delicate and distracting Mrs. Fielding, who also attracts the ever-wandering eye of Jack Aubrey, Stephen's sensibilities are severely tested.

What the Critics Say

"...comic, grim, farcical, and tragic. An essential of the truly gripping book for the narrative addict is the creation of a whole, solidly living world for the imagination to inhabit, and O'Brian does this with prodigal specificity and generosity." (A.S. Byatt)

Every book gets better

Wonderful story, great continuing characters. Patrick Tull's narration is the best I've heard on any audio book. Start with the first book in this 21 book series and you'll be hooked. It helps to see the movie, Master and Commander, but that script was taken from several books and it omits the important Maturin espionage part of the plots throughout.

Patrick Tull finally defeated!

Finally, an accent (Italian woman), that Patrick Tull cannot do with perfection.

The book is a typical M&C - Jack is sailing around doing Jack things, while the Doctor is up to his capers and collecting organisms.

If you've ever wondered how they can do all that swimming in the ocean and never get attacked by sharks, you're questions are answered in this book. And it's particularly gruesome.....

Very enjoyable listen. The end looked tedious, but was a very big surprise, including the death of a long time character.
