About this title

Synopsis:

A novel by the author of Desolation Island, The Fortune of War and The Mauritius Command. Follows the variable fortunes of Jack Aubrey's career in the Nelsonic navy as he attempts to hold his ground against admirals, colleagues and the enemy.

Review:

The stakes are high as HMS Surprise opens, and actor Robert Hardy's sterling reading never lets you forget them. Hardy makes Patrick O'Brian's third novel of high-seas adventure--written in 1973 and set mainly in 1805 on the waters surrounding India and the Orient--seem as immediate as an overdrawn checking account. Money plays a big role, and Captain Jack Aubrey stands to make a lot of it. All he has to do is find Napoleon's fleet--and take their gold away from them. (Running time: three hours, two cassettes) --Lou Schuler
