BLUE AT THE MIZZEN (PAPERBACK, 40TH ANNIVERSARY ED)

This item is sold brand new. It is ordered on demand from our supplier and is usually dispatched within 8 - 15 working days ?If we had only two or three of Patrick O?Brian?s Aubrey-Maturin series, we would count ourselves lucky; with six or seven the author would be safely among the greats of historical fiction? This is great writing by an undiminished talent. Now on to Volume Twenty, and the liberation of Chile.? WILLIAM WALDEGRAVE, Literary Review This is the twentieth book in Patrick O?Brian?s highly acclaimed, bestselling series chronicling the adventures of lucky Jack Aubrey and his best friend Stephen Maturin, part ship?s doctor, part secret agent. The novel?s stirring action follows on from that of The Hundred Days. Napoleon?s hundred days of freedom and his renewed threat to Europe have ended at Waterloo and Aubrey has finally, as the title suggests, become a blue level admiral. He and Maturin have ? at last ? set sail on their much postponed mission to Chile. Vivid with the salty tang of life at sea, O?Brian?s writing is as powerful as ever whether he writes of naval hierarchies, night-actions or the most celebrated fictional friendship since that of Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. Blue at the Mizzen also brings alive the sights and sounds of revolutionary South America in a story as exciting as any O?Brian has written. Features Summary Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey-Maturin tales are widely acknowledged to be the greatest series of historical novels ever written. To commemorate the 40th anniversary of their beginning...

The chase that follows through the fogs and shallows of the Grand Banks is as thrilling, as tense and as unexpected in its culmination as anything Patrick O'Brian has written.

Once again, the tigerish and fascinating Diana Villiers redresses the balance in this man's world of seamanship and war.
