Publisher's Summary

When Napoleon escapes from Elba, the fate of Europe hinges on a desperate mission: Stephen Maturin must ferret out the French dictator's secret link to the powers of Islam, and Jack Aubrey must destroy it. Napoleon, like a vengeful phoenix, pursues his enemies across Europe. If he can corner the British and Prussians before their Russian and Austrian allies arrive, his genius will lead the French armies to triumph at Waterloo.

In the Balkans, a horde of Muslim mercenaries is gathering in support of Napoleon, but they will not move without a shipment of gold ingots, which is on its way via camel caravan to the coast of North Africa. It is this gold that Aubrey and Maturin must intercept at all costs.

Raise anchor! Don't miss the rest of the Aubrey/Maturin series.

What the Critics Say

"[T]eems with amusing scenes, vivid dialog, glib phrase-making, and the tall-tale-spinner's gift for never taking the picaresque adventures of his characters seriously." (Library Journal)
"The Hundred Days may be the best installment yet in a stalwart series. I give O'Brian's fans joy of it and hope that other readers will be lucky enough to discover one of the best novelists since Jane Austen." (Philadelphia Inquirer)
"The Aubrey-Maturin series nears the two dozen mark the way it began, with colorful historical background, smooth plotting, marvelous characters and great style....O'Brian continues to unroll a splendid Turkish rug of a saga." (Publishers Weekly)
