Publisher's Summary

The fourteenth book in the Aubrey/Maturin series.

The Nutmeg of Consolation opens with Jack Aubrey and his friend the intelligence agent Stephen Maturin stranded, following a shipwreck, on an uninhabited island in the Dutch East Indies, under siege by ferocious Malay pirates. They contrive their escape, but after a change of ship, find themselves caught up in a night chase in fiercly tidal waters and then embroiled in the much more insidious conflicts of the terrifying penal settlements of New South Wales.

What the Critics Say

"Robert Hardy's reading gives a real feel of salt spray, not to mention a taste of the lash." (The Times)

    "Thank you Patrick O'Brian"

    Reading his books or even watching 'Master & Commander' as a worthy film still somehow doesn't bring these wonderful books truly to light as Robert hardy has managed so well to do. His ability to take you all over the ship of the line, as O'Brian wanted us to understand is quite remarkable.
