    Description

    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.

    Aubrey Maturin at its finest

    From indies to Australia in this volume. The flow of the series is at its best in the repeating year of 1813. All the characters and places seem so very real.

    Wonderful

    This is one of the best books in the series , though they are all great.
    The insight of early Australia is particularly good.
    Best narrator I have heard.

    Continues a brilliant series

    The Aubrey/Maturin books are a mixture of nautical action (Hornblower for adults), a fascinating historical backdrop and skillfully created characters. "The Nutmeg of Consolation" is among the best in the series and - like the others - expertly read by Ric Jerrom.
