The Ionian Mission (Vol. Book 8) (Aubrey/Maturin Novels)

Patrick O'Brian

"O'Brian is one writer who can positioned a spark of personality into the sawdust of time, and The Ionian Mission is one other damn solid yarn." ―Stephen Vaughan, The Observer

Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin, veterans now of many battles, go back during this novel to the seas the place they first sailed as shipmates. yet Jack is now a senior captain commanding a line-of-battle send within the Royal Navy's blockade of Toulon, and it is a longer, more durable, chillier battle than the rushing frigate activities of his early days. A unexpected flip of occasions takes him and Stephen off on a dangerous undertaking to the Greek Islands, the place all his previous talents of seamanship and his proverbial success whilst battling opposed to odds come triumphantly into their very own.
