The Surgeon’s Mate - Patrick O'Brian

Paperback - Very Good Condition


Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin are ordered home by despatch vessel to bring the news of their latest victory to the government. But Maturin is a marked man for the havoc he has wrought in the French intelligence network in the New World, and the attentions of two privateers soon become menacing.

The chase that follows through the fogs and shallows of the Grand Banks is as thrilling, as tense and as unexpected as anything O’Brian has written. Then, among other things, follows a shipwreck and a particularly sinister internment in the Temple Prison in Paris. Once again the tigerish and fascinating Diana Villiers redresses the balance in this man’s world of seamanship and war.
