Captain Aubrey is ashore on half pay without a command--until Steve Maturin arrives with secret orders for Aubrey to take a frigate to the Cape of Good Hope under a Commodore's pennant, there to mount an expedition against French-held islands of Mauritius and La Re'union.

This a 3 cassette abridged audio book read by Tim Pigott-Smith.

I am a sailor, a medic, a natural history buff, a horsewoman, love classical chamber music so how could I NOT love these books? The first one was the toughest they just get better and better. After three readings of the whole series, two trips to see the film, a pilgrimage to Southhampton, England I'd say I'm a fan but willing to share the paperbacks at least. So glad I got to meet the author before his death and the illsutrator of the covers.

Like previous Aubrey-Maturin books, this one took me back in time to the Napoleonic Wars and to faraway places. I liked the interactions between Dr. Stephen Maturin and his friend Jack Aubrey. I look forward to reading the next book in the series, Desolation Island.

The books in this series keep getting better; Im not sure how its possible


Trigger warnings: It's a book about war, so expect violence.
