Patrick O’Brian’s Aubrey-Maturin tales are widely hailed as the greatest series of historical novels ever written. This is the seventeenth Aubrey-Maturin novel.Jack Aubrey’s long service is at last rewarded: he is promoted to the rank of Commodore and given a squadron of ships to command. His mission is twofold – to make a large dent in the slave trade off the coast of Africa and. on his return. to intercept a French fleet set for Bantry Bay with a cargo of weapons for the disaffected among the Irish. Invention and surprise follow at every turn in this tale of nineteenth-century seamanship. as rich. as compelling. as masterly as any of its predecessors.

Richmond is in a panic. For the fourth time in eighteen months. a young girl or woman has been brutalized and murdered. This time the body of a fourteen-year-old girl is found in Richmond’s Shockoe Bottom train station. On her ankle is the same perversely cartoonish tattoo that has led the cops and newspapers to dub the perpetrator the Tweety Bird killer.When Willie Black finds out that the night security guy at the station was lured away from his post by a phone call from Willie’s daughter just before the body was dumped. the story gets weirder-and a lot more personal.At the same time. Willie’s paper is facing a lawsuit from a developer who wants to make a killing of another kind by turning part of the Bottom into Top of the Bottom-a mix of big-box stores and apartments. It’s an area where slaves were buried in unmarked graves. many of them still not discovered. The Bottom is emblematic of what Willie thinks of as the permanent stain Richmond can never wash away. but now he and the paper are under pressure to „lay off” Wat Chenault and his plans to turn the land into a real estate bonanza.When the police arrest Ronnie Sax. a photographer who used to work at Willie’s paper. for the murders. the evidence seems overwhelming. But then Willie starts getting letters from someone who seems to know more about the killings than an innocent bystander should. Sax is eventually released. and the city goes on high alert once again. At the same time. Willie grows more and more suspicious about Chenault’s motives.Willie is also trying to crawl back into the good graces of the lovely Cindy Peroni. seeking to convince her that he at last has a handle on his bourbon and two-packs-a-day habits.In The Bottom. the fourth Willie Black mystery. Richmond’s nosiest newspaperman. true to form. chases the story like a bulldog going after a pork chop. But once he’s caught it. he’ll wish he hadn’t.
