Patrick O’Brian’s Aubrey-Maturin tales are widely hailed as the greatest series of historical novels ever written.Commissioned to rescue Governor Bligh of Bounty fame. Captain Jack Aubrey and his friend and surgeon. Stephen Maturin. sail the Leopard to Australia with a hold full of convicts. Among them is a beautiful and dangerous spy – and a treacherous disease which decimates the crew.The ingredients of a wonderfully powerful and dramatic O’Brian novel are heightened by descriptive writing of rare quality.
