The Society will discuss the fifth book in Patrick O’Brian’s Aubrey-Maturin series
Captain Jack Aubrey, RN, arrives in the Dutch East Indies to find himself appointed commander of the fastest and best- armed frigate in the Navy. He and Stephen Maturin take passage for England in a despatch vessel, as the war of 1812 breaks out. Bloody actions precipitate them both into new and unexpected scenes where Stephen’s past activities as a secret agent return to him with vengeance.
