Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin, veterans of many battles, return in this novel to the seas where they first sailed as shipmates. But Jack is now a senior captain, commanding a line-of-battle ship sent out to reinforce the squadron blockading Toulon, and this is a longer, harder, colder war than the dashing frigate action of his early days.... A sudden turn of events takes him and Stephen off on a hazardous mission to the Greek islands. All his old skills of seamanship - and luck when fighting against odds - come triumphantly into their own as the story concludes with some fierce and thrilling action.

Expensive but worth it
Best audiobook version and a fantastic series production of this book in my humble opinion.
Ric Jerrom is the best narrator of these stories I have heard but sadly the original publisher has gone in to liquidation and there is nothing available after a Wine Dark Sea".
I sincerely hope Audible will work with Mr Jerrom to finish this brilliant body of work!
