Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey & Maturin tales are widely acknowledged to be the greatest series of historical novels ever written.

Captain Jack Aubrey is ashore on half-pay without a command - until his friend, and occasional intelligence agent, Stephen Maturin, arrives with secret orders for Aubrey to take a frigate to the Cape of Good Hope, under a Commodore's pennant.

But the difficulties of carrying out his orders are compounded by two of his own captains - Lord Clonfert, a pleasure seeking dilettante and Captain Corbett, whose severity can push his crews to the verge of mutiny.
