If their mission fails, English merchant shipping in the area will be threatened.

Every Patrick O'Brien novel - especially all of the Aubrey Maturin series - should be required reading for anyone who loves a great story with compelling characters, adventure, suspense and just the slightest touch of romance. Add to that that they are steeped in actual history - based on the logbooks of the RN captains who sailed in the era about which he writes - these are history lessons in the most entertaining form imaginable. Highest recommendation i could possibly give.

Another story limited in calendar length with a lot of color for the reader. I think it's a good story, although parts are familiar to the readers of all of the previous books. To be sure, O'Brian inserts new twists and certainly leaves the reader with a spectacular cliff hanger at the end. As usual, the characters and the action are worth reading. I learned more about the Malaysian geopolitical situation of the era. There is little that happens at sea and there are long passages of the at sea portion of the book that, in reality, are meaningless and seem designed to lengthen the overall story. The treachery that occurs on land is worthy of any spy novel of any era. Overall, I'm glad I read it. I really like the characters, the plots and the storytelling devised by Patrick O'Brian in this series. I like it so much I'm reading the entire series for the second time. I recommend it.

O'Brian puts the reader directly in the times of a British Naval officer and the voyages and actions encountered. The battle scenes are exciting as are the vivid descriptions of weather encountered under sail (storms and calms). An aspect of the writing and story lines in the Aubrey/Maturin series I love is the placing of the characters in actual historic scenarios. Its been fun to look up the ships and battles. For non-sailors, there may be ships terms used that are not understood (e.g., cathead, cross-trees) and some descriptions of the positioning of ships prior to engaging in battle (e.g., gaining weather gage), which add to a sailors reading enjoyment, but for others just read through and enjoy the content! Plenty in these books to keep you turning pages!

I have read every book in this series so far. None have disappointed me. I feel like I know these men and I enjoy their successes and I distress at their loses. Fortunately, this one was about successes.

Until introduced to Patrick O'Brian some eight years ago, I had assumed (incorrectly) that the Hornblower series by C. S. Forester was the top-of-the-line for naval conflicts, at least in the Napoleonic era. Fortunately, I was tipped to O'Brian and have now, thanks to Amazon and the Kindle editions, been able to read all the Aubrey/Maturin Novels. I could niggle, and say that in the later works there is too much exposition of previous adventures, but that may be necessary for those who read the books one at a time in standalone fashion. However, they are still the best of the lot.

I think this series is one , if not, THE best that I have read. The books offer insights into history and particularly interesting details into the British Navy, how the politics worked, the mores, the physical details, and many, many similar things. I never thought I would get so hooked on something like this series. Read it, and please start from the first book, though they can be read individually and stand on their own. Reading them serially, though, adds insight. I am so sorry that I am coming to the end. Shame on O'Brian for not living forever and turning out these books as fast as I have time to read them.

A continuing great British sea story series, great story line
This is about the 13th in the series that I have been reading back-to-back and they just keep getting better. Between the dialogue and the descriptions you are actually there. As best I can I like to supplement my reading with searching out the geography on Google Earth and looking up some of the more arcane terminology.
