Review by Tamar Lewin, New York Times Book Review: "Here is an unexpected bonus: a precursor to the Aubrey-Maturin series...with all the charm of the author's mature works. And for those who have been daunted by the prospect of embarking on a 17-volume series, here is the perfect way to test the waters...It has the same elements that mark O'Brian's more recent works: the wealth of social detail, the quiet humor, the harrowing shipwrecks, the swashbuckling adventures in foreign parts...From a cozy, well-lighted 20th-century home, [Jack and Toby's] travails could not be more delightful to contemplate."
