Während die Franzosen ihre Vorherrschaft im Indischen Ozean mit Hilfe ihrer Hauptstützpunkte auf La Réunion und Mauritius noch weiter auszubauen versuchen, fehlen den Briten die Schiffe um die Seewege für ihren Ostindienhandel ausreichend zu beschützen. Da auch eine unbegrenzte Blockade der Inseln nicht im Bereich des Möglichen liegt, erhält Kapitän Jack Aubrey den Befehl, die französischen Schiffe einzeln zu bekämpfen – ein Auftrag, dem ohne die zuverlässigen Informationsquellen des Schiffsarztes und Geheimagenten Dr. Stephen Maturin kein Erfolg beschieden sein könnte. Und obwohl die Chancen zeitweise sieben zu drei gegen Jack und sein Geschwader stehen, kehrt er als Sieger nach Großbritannien zurück. Und mit einer Beförderung zum Kommodore ... Der vierte Band aus der weltweit erfolgreichen marinehistorischen Serie um den Seehelden Jack Aubrey und seinen Schiffsarzt Dr. Stephen Maturin.

»Die besten marine-historischen Romane, die je geschrieben wurden.« New York Times Book Review Sophie, eine kleine langsame Brigg, die durch Captain Jack Aubreys Rang zur Slup erklärt wird, bietet mehr den Anblick einer gemütlichen Taube als eines schneidigen Falken. Doch dieser Eindruck täuscht gewaltig. Ihr Kommandant, der als Handelsstörer die Häfen und den Nachschub der Feinde Englands im Mittelmeer gewaltig unter Druck setzen soll, hält es mit dem Grundsatz seines berühmten Vorbildes Lord Nelson: »Vergeßt die Manöver! Immer drauf auf den Feind!« Die Aufgabe der Sophie ist mindestens so wichtig, wie eine Seeschlacht zu gewinnen. Und um so vieles profitabler, daß die Mannschaft darüber die Schinderei des Borddienstes vergißt. Auch Stephen Maturin, zunächst eine veritable Landratte, aber ein Virtuose des Skalpells und am Cello, trägt als Bordmediziner dazu bei, daß die Sophie in tollkühnen Gefechten mit den Feinden immer gewagter Katz und Maus spielt. Daß er ein Geheimnis verbirgt, schmälert seine Beliebtheit nicht. Der erste Band aus der weltweit erfolgreichen marinehistorischen Serie um den Seehelden Jack Aubrey und seinen Schiffsarzt Dr. Stephen Maturin.

"In length the series is unique; in quality—and there is not a weak link in the chain—it cannot but be ranked with the best of twentieth century historical novels."—T. J. Binyon, Independent Captain Jack Aubrey sets sail for the South China Sea with a new lease on life. Following his dismissal from the Royal Navy (a false accusation), he has earned reinstatement through his daring exploits as a privateer, brilliantly chronicled in The Letter of Marque. Now he is to shepherd Stephen Maturin—his friend, ship's surgeon, and sometimes intelligence agent—on a diplomatic mission to prevent links between Bonaparte and the Malay princes which would put English merchant shipping at risk. The journey of the Diane encompasses a great and satisfying diversity of adventures. Maturin climbs the Thousand Steps of the sacred crater of the orangutans; a killer typhoon catches Aubrey and his crew trying to work the Diane off a reef; and in the barbaric court of Pulo Prabang a classic duel of intelligence agents unfolds: the French envoys, well entrenched in the Sultan's good graces, against the savage cunning of Stephen Maturin.

The fifteenth installment in Patrick O'Brian's widely claimed series of Aubrey/Maturin novels is in equal parts mystery, adventure, and psychological drama. A British whaler has been captured by an ambitious chief in the sandwich islands at French instigation, and Captain Aubrey, R. N., Is dispatched with the Surprise to restore order. But stowed away in the cable-tier is an escaped female convict. To the officers, Clarissa Harvill is an object of awkward courtliness and dangerous jealousies. Aubrey himself is won over and indeed strongly attracted to this woman who will not speak of her past. But only Aubrey's friend, Dr. Stephen Maturin, can fathom Clarissa's secrets: her crime, her personality, and a clue identifying a highly placed English spy in the pay of Napoleon's intelligence service. In a thrilling finale, Patrick O'Brian delivers all the excitement his many readers expect: Aubrey and the crew of the Surprise impose a brutal pax Britannica upon the islanders in a pitched battle against a band of headhunting cannibals.

"[The series shows] a joy in language that jumps from every page....You're in for a wonderful voyage."—Cutler Durkee, People Shipwrecked on a remote island in the Dutch East Indies, Captain Aubrey, surgeon and secret intelligence agent Stephen Maturin, and the crew of the Diane fashion a schooner from the wreck. A vicious attack by Malay pirates is repulsed, but the makeshift vessel burns, and they are truly marooned. Their escape from this predicament is one that only the whimsy and ingenuity of Patrick O'Brian—or Stephen Maturin—could devise. In command now of a new ship, the Nutmeg, Aubrey pursues his interrupted mission. The dreadful penal colony in New South Wales, harrowingly described, is the backdrop to a diplomatic crisis provoked by Maturin's Irish temper, and to a near-fatal encounter with the wildlife of the Australian outback.
