Shipwrecks, Black-Ops Scientologists, Pirate Space Stations, Cloche Hats & Emotional Illustrations — The Thirteen-Gun Salute, Patrick O’Brian The Thirteen-Gun Salute (Aubrey/Maturin Series, Book 13) (Aubrey & Maturin series)
Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey-Maturin tales are widely acknowledged to be the greatest series of historical novels ever…amzn.to Continuing my Patrick O’Brian re-re-re-read. Traitors. South America. Assassinations. Dissections. Great apes. Banking failures. Shipwrecks. All the good stuff. A somewhat cliffhanger ending too. I can imagine being somewhat annoyed if I had to wait for “The Nutmeg of Consolation”, but fortunately I don’t have to wait!
