"There are those already planning this afternoon's trip to the bookstore. Their only reaction is: Thank god, Patrick O'Brian is still writing. To you, I say, not a moment to lose."—John Balzar, Los Angeles Times Life ashore may once again be the undoing of Jack Aubrey in The Yellow Admiral, Patrick O'Brian's best-selling novel and eighteenth volume in the Aubrey/Maturin series. Aubrey, now a considerable though impoverished landowner, has dimmed his prospects at the Admiralty by his erratic voting as a Member of Parliament; he is feuding with his neighbor, a man with strong Navy connections who wants to enclose the common land between their estates; he is on even worse terms with his wife, Sophie, whose mother has ferreted out a most damaging trove of old personal letters. Even Jack's exploits at sea turn sour: in the storm waters off Brest he captures a French privateer laden with gold and ivory, but this at the expense of missing a signal and deserting his post. Worst of all, in the spring of 1814, peace breaks out, and this feeds into Jack's private fears for his career. Fortunately, Jack is not left to his own devices. Stephen Maturin returns from a mission in France with the news that the Chileans, to secure their independence, require a navy, and the service of English officers. Jack is savoring this apparent reprieve for his career, as well as Sophie's forgiveness, when he receives an urgent dispatch ordering him to Gibraltar: Napoleon has escaped from Elba.

Die Schlacht von Waterloo ist geschlagen, das Kriegsrecht gilt in Großbritannien nicht mehr. Damit ist HMS Surprise, die zu dringenden Reparaturarbeiten in Gibraltar liegt, nicht länger ein Kriegsschiff, sondern von einem Tag zum nächsten ein privates Vermessungsschiff, das offiziell nur lose in Verbindung mit der Royal Navy steht, und das Auseinanderbrechen der Besatzung in einem buntgescheckten Haufen wirft düstere Schatten auf das Gemüt ihres Kapitäns Jack Aubrey. Denn er braucht für sein Südamerika-Abenteuer starke Teerjacken: Vorgeblich soll die Surprise die chilenische Küste und die Gewässer kartographieren, doch tatsächlich beabsichtigt die britische Regierung, die chilenischen Unabhängigkeitskämpfer zu unterstützen, ein sogenannter Freundschaftsdienst, der Lucky Jack endlich ans Ziel seiner Wünsche bringen könnte ... Der zwanzigste Roman und Höhepunkt der weltberühmten marinehistorischen Bestsellerserie um Jack Aubrey und Dr. Stephen Maturin.

The fifteenth installment in Patrick O'Brian's widely claimed series of Aubrey/Maturin novels is in equal parts mystery, adventure, and psychological drama. A British whaler has been captured by an ambitious chief in the sandwich islands at French instigation, and Captain Aubrey, R. N., Is dispatched with the Surprise to restore order. But stowed away in the cable-tier is an escaped female convict. To the officers, Clarissa Harvill is an object of awkward courtliness and dangerous jealousies. Aubrey himself is won over and indeed strongly attracted to this woman who will not speak of her past. But only Aubrey's friend, Dr. Stephen Maturin, can fathom Clarissa's secrets: her crime, her personality, and a clue identifying a highly placed English spy in the pay of Napoleon's intelligence service. In a thrilling finale, Patrick O'Brian delivers all the excitement his many readers expect: Aubrey and the crew of the Surprise impose a brutal pax Britannica upon the islanders in a pitched battle against a band of headhunting cannibals.

"[The series shows] a joy in language that jumps from every page....You're in for a wonderful voyage."—Cutler Durkee, People Shipwrecked on a remote island in the Dutch East Indies, Captain Aubrey, surgeon and secret intelligence agent Stephen Maturin, and the crew of the Diane fashion a schooner from the wreck. A vicious attack by Malay pirates is repulsed, but the makeshift vessel burns, and they are truly marooned. Their escape from this predicament is one that only the whimsy and ingenuity of Patrick O'Brian—or Stephen Maturin—could devise. In command now of a new ship, the Nutmeg, Aubrey pursues his interrupted mission. The dreadful penal colony in New South Wales, harrowingly described, is the backdrop to a diplomatic crisis provoked by Maturin's Irish temper, and to a near-fatal encounter with the wildlife of the Australian outback.

The sixteenth volume in the Aubrey/Maturin series, and Patrick O'Brian's first bestseller in the United States. At the outset of this adventure filled with disaster and delight, Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin pursue an American privateer through the Great South Sea. The strange color of the ocean reminds Stephen of Homer's famous description, and portends an underwater volcanic eruption that will create a new island overnight and leave an indelible impression on the reader's imagination. Their ship, the Surprise, is now also a privateer, the better to escape diplomatic complications from Stephen's mission, which is to ignite the revolutionary tinder of South America. Jack will survive a desperate open boat journey and come face to face with his illegitimate black son; Stephen, caught up in the aftermath of his failed coup, will flee for his life into the high, frozen wastes of the Andes; and Patrick O'Brian's brilliantly detailed narrative will reunite them at last in a breathtaking chase through stormy seas and icebergs south of Cape Horn, where the hunters suddenly become the hunted.

Trotz der sofortigen Wiederaufrüstung nach Napoleons Flucht von Elba im Frühjahr 1815 können die Briten ihre stillgelegten Kriegsschiffe nicht innerhalb weniger Wochen seeklar machen. Und so dauert es zu lange, bis sich die Royal Navy wieder aktiv im Krieg befindet, um die Adriahäfen zu schließen und jedes Schiff zu versenken, das die Absicht hat, sich Napoleon anzuschließen. Nur Kommodore Aubrey auf der Surprise und sein Geschwader, die bereits im Mittelmeer auf und ab stehen, um die Straße von Gibraltar zu überwachen, können die Schiffe des muslimischen Herrschers Ibn Hazm von Azarhar stellen, als er den Transport eines Goldschatzes verfügt, der Napoleon die Vorherrschaft in Europa endgültig sichern soll. Doch ohne die fein gesponnenen Fäden von Dr. Stephen Maturin, der seine Karriere als Geheimagent und sein Überleben nicht zuletzt seinem scharfen Ohr für Heuchelei verdankt, wäre der Royal Navy diesmal kein Erfolg beschieden. Der neunzehnte Roman der Bestsellerserie, die ihre Leser und Kritiker weltweit zu begeisterten Fans wegen der marinehistorischen Genauigkeit und des feinen literarischen Niveaus werden ließ.
