The "New York Times" bestselling novel of high seas adventure—now in paperback. Life ashore may be the undoing of Jack Aubrey in O'Brian's eighteenth volume in the Aubrey/Maturin series. Aubrey, now a considerable though impoverished landowner, has dimmed his prospects for the Admiralty by his erratic voting as a Member of Parliament. Worst of all, in the spring of 1814, peace breaks out, and this feeds into Aubrey's private fears for his career.
