    Commissioned to rescue Governor Bligh of Bounty fame, Captain Jack Aubrey and his friend, 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 that decimates the crew. With a Dutch man-of-war to windward, the undermanned, outgunned Leopard sails for her life into the freezing waters of the Antarctic, where, in mountainous seas, the Dutchman closes in.

    Robert A. Boyce says: "Terrific Narration"
    "Desolation Island"
    Overall

    Patrick O'Brian is one of the finest writers of the 20th century and this is one of his best chapters in the Aubrey-Maturin series. His prose and Patrick Tull's mastery of high Irish, dockyard English, and the workings of sailing ships and Nelson's navy give you a front row seat to the thrills and dangers of the high seas during Napeoleon's domination af Europe. You won't find a better read. Intoxicating!!
