The Fortune of Warby Patrick Obrian
Synopses & Reviews
Captain Jack Aubrey, R. N., arrives in the Dutch East Indies to find himself appointed to the command of the fastest and best-armed frigate in the Navy. He and his friend Stephen Maturin take passage for England in a dispatch vessel. But the War of 1812 breaks out while they are en route. Bloody actions precipitate them both into new and unexpected scenes where Stephen's past activities as a secret agent return on him with a vengeance.
"A marvellously full-flavoured, engrossing book, which towers over its current rivals in the genre like a three-decker over a ship's longboat."--
Jack Aubrey is appointed to command the fastest and best-armed frigate in the Royal Navy. He and Stephen Maturin sail back to England--just as the War of 1812 breaks out.
