To whom does one’s true allegiance lie?

Jack Aubrey’s long service has at last been rewarded with promotion to the rank of commodore, and a squadron of ships to command. His new commission is twofold – first, inhibit the slave trade off the coast of West Africa, and then, on his return, intercept a French fleet loaded with weapons intended for the disaffected Irish.

But will the conflict of loyalties be insurmountable for his friend, and Irishman, Stephen Maturin?

‘His novels are . . . as delicately perceptive about the human condition as the Jane Austen novels that O’Brian himself so much admired.’

‘One of the most brilliantly sustained pieces of historical fictional writing this century.’
