"The finest writer of sea-stories in the English language."—J. de Courcy Ireland

Norton Pub
All Patrick O'Brian's strengths are on parade in this novel of action and intrigue, set partly in Malta, partly in the treacherous, pirate-infested waters of the Red Sea. While Captain Aubrey worries about repairs to his ship, Stephen Maturin assumes the center stage for the dockyards and salons of Malta are alive with Napoleon's agents, and the admiralty's intelligence network is compromised. Maturin's cunning is the sole bulwark against sabotage of Aubrey's daring mission.

An enjoyable installment of O'Brian's Aubrey/Maturin series, though it bounces around between exotic settings a bit much. Also, at this stage it has become next to impossible to suspend disbelief in the chronology of the events being described. I realize O'Brian himself recognized this problem with his famous "1812a, 1812b" remarks, but nonetheless the departure from the series' standard of accuracy is unfortunate.
