New, with mild age wear to cover, bumping and scuffing, reflected in price. The outstanding, action packed thriller that is now a major motion picture starring Russell Crowe. The greatest historical novelist of all time. (fic)
Captain Jack Aubrey sets sail for Cape Horn, determined to intercept an American frigate before it can wreak havoc on the British whaling trade. As always, he is accompanied by intelligence operative Stephen Maturin, and as always, Aubrey has no idea of what his companion is up to. Another impeccably written adventure, by the end of which you should be able to identify a mizzen topsail in your sleep.
