The sixteenth volume in the Aubrey/Maturin series, and Patrick O'Brian's first bestseller in the United States. At the outset of this adventure filled with disaster and delight, Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin pursue an American privateer through the Great South Sea. The strange color of the ocean reminds Stephen of Homer's famous description, and portends an underwater volcanic eruption that will create a new island overnight and leave an indelible impression on the reader's imagination. Their ship, the Surprise, is now also a privateer, the better to escape diplomatic complications from Stephen's mission, which is to ignite the revolutionary tinder of South America. Jack will survive a desperate open boat journey and come face to face with his illegitimate black son; Stephen, caught up in the aftermath of his failed coup, will flee for his life into the high, frozen wastes of the Andes; and Patrick O'Brian's brilliantly detailed narrative will reunite them at last in a breathtaking chase through stormy seas and icebergs south of Cape Horn, where the hunters suddenly become the hunted.
Patrick O’Brian’s Aubrey-Maturin tales are widely acknowledged to be the greatest series of historical novels ever written. Now, for the first time, they are available in electronic book format, so a whole new generation of readers can be swept away on the adventure of a lifetime. This is the sixteenth book in the series.
Captain Aubrey and the crew of the Surprise are pursuing an American privateer through the Great South Sea.
Die Schlacht von Waterloo ist geschlagen, das Kriegsrecht gilt in Großbritannien nicht mehr. Damit ist HMS Surprise, die zu dringenden Reparaturarbeiten in Gibraltar liegt, nicht länger ein Kriegsschiff, sondern von einem Tag zum nächsten ein privates Vermessungsschiff, das offiziell nur lose in Verbindung mit der Royal Navy steht, und das Auseinanderbrechen der Besatzung in einem buntgescheckten Haufen wirft düstere Schatten auf das Gemüt ihres Kapitäns Jack Aubrey. Denn er braucht für sein Südamerika-Abenteuer starke Teerjacken: Vorgeblich soll die Surprise die chilenische Küste und die Gewässer kartographieren, doch tatsächlich beabsichtigt die britische Regierung, die chilenischen Unabhängigkeitskämpfer zu unterstützen, ein sogenannter Freundschaftsdienst, der Lucky Jack endlich ans Ziel seiner Wünsche bringen könnte ... Der zwanzigste Roman und Höhepunkt der weltberühmten marinehistorischen Bestsellerserie um Jack Aubrey und Dr. Stephen Maturin.
The fifteenth installment in Patrick O'Brian's widely claimed series of Aubrey/Maturin novels is in equal parts mystery, adventure, and psychological drama. A British whaler has been captured by an ambitious chief in the sandwich islands at French instigation, and Captain Aubrey, R. N., Is dispatched with the Surprise to restore order. But stowed away in the cable-tier is an escaped female convict. To the officers, Clarissa Harvill is an object of awkward courtliness and dangerous jealousies. Aubrey himself is won over and indeed strongly attracted to this woman who will not speak of her past. But only Aubrey's friend, Dr. Stephen Maturin, can fathom Clarissa's secrets: her crime, her personality, and a clue identifying a highly placed English spy in the pay of Napoleon's intelligence service. In a thrilling finale, Patrick O'Brian delivers all the excitement his many readers expect: Aubrey and the crew of the Surprise impose a brutal pax Britannica upon the islanders in a pitched battle against a band of headhunting cannibals.
The inspiration for the major new motion picture starring Russell Crowe. The war of 1812 continues, and Jack Aubrey sets course for Cape Horn on a mission after his own heart: intercepting a powerful American frigate outward bound to play havoc with the British whaling trade. Stephen Maturin has fish of his own to fry in the world of secret intelligence. Disaster in various guises awaits them in the Great South Sea and in the far reaches of the Pacific: typhoons, castaways, shipwrecks, murder, and criminal insanity.
