Aubrey-Maturin #19: The Hundred Days Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Patrick O'Brian's 20-volume epic of naval tales — echoing the work of such master writers as Joseph Conrad, Herman Melville, and Jane Austen — brings to life the exploits of the British navy during the Napoleonic Wars. From the excitement of the chases, storms, and battles to the authenticity of language, humor, and the wealth of detail — down to the last button and turn of phrase — old and new readers will share the exciting adventure of O'Brian's early-nineteenth-century world.

Aubrey and Maturin receive an urgent dispatch ordering them to Gibraltar: Napoleon has escaped from exile at Elba. The fate of Europe hinges on their desperate mission.

Synopsis:

When Napoleon escapes from Elba, the fate of Europe hinges on a desperate mission: Stephen Maturin must ferret out the French dictator's secret link to the powers of Islam, and Jack Aubrey must destroy it.
