Captain Aubrey returns to England, before being sent to be part of a blockade. Once again his naval career is going through the doldrums, his dread of being yellowed and troubles on the home front.
Dr Maturin meanwhile has a few troubles of his own, but manages to read the situation. Often O'Brian sends problems the way of his characters and kills off members of the crew, but it was hard life in the Navy.
