Publisher Comments:

Captain Jack Aubrey, R. N., ashore after a successful cruise, is persuaded by a casual acquaintance to make certain investments in the City. This innocent decision ensnares him in the London criminal underground and in government espionage--the province of his friend Stephen Maturin. Is Aubrey's humiliation and the threatened ruin of his career a deliberate plot? This dark tale is a fitting backdrop to the brilliant characterization and sparkling dialogue which O'Brian's readers have come to expect.

Synopsis:

"An overwhelming, outstanding novel...!"--

Synopsis:

In the early 1800s, the British Navy stands as the only bulwark against the militant fanaticism of Napoleonic France. When Captain Jack Aubrey, R.N., returns from a tour of duty protecting whalers off South America and is lured into the criminal underground of London, friend Stephen Maturin steps in.

Patrick O'brian's Aubrey/Maturin series are riveting fiction about the British navy, at the end of the 1700's and into the early 1800's. Many of the adventures are based on true accounts from British navy logs and correspondence, into which "Lucky Jack" Aubrey and his crews are placed.
Watch the movie with Russell Crowe, then read the books. You will see excerpts from many of the books thorughout the movie.
Once you start the first book, you'll want to read them all!
