Summary

As he sails away from Port Jackson, Captain Jack Aubrey feels nothing but relief at leaving the penal colony and its inhabitants far behind. But, unknown to him, hidden among his crew is one Clarissa Oakes. With Britain at war on two fronts, with both America and France, Aubrey’s orders are to make for the Sandwich Islands and intervene in the conflict there.

How much trouble can one woman cause?

Critic reviews

"One moment you laugh out loud at comedy rooted in character, and the next, storming adventure or danger grips you by the throat...good writing allied to must-read-on storytelling." (Shaun Usher, Daily Mail)

"Thank God for Patrick O’Brian. His genius illuminates the literature of the English language, and lightens the lives of those who read him." (Kevin Myers, Irish Times)
