    Captain Jack Aubrey is ashore on half pay without a command, until Stephen Maturin arrives with secret orders for Aubrey to take a frigate to the Cape of Good Hope under a commodore's pennant, there to mount an expedition against the French-held islands of Mauritius and La Reunion. 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 pushes his crew to the verge of mutiny.

    Lawrence says: "Great Reader"
    "prefer Patrick Tull version"
    Overall

    I dearly love the Aubrey/Maturin series, but I far prefer Patrick Tull's reading of the series having listened to recordings from both Simon Vance and Patrick Tull. Audible has both versions, so be careful.
