Now, I'm a big fan of Patrick O'Brien and the wonderful adventures of Jack Aubrey on his ship The Surprise as they sailed the seas during the Napoleonic years and so this book, whose cover even looks like one of O'Brien's books, had a lot to live up to. I'm sorry to say that I didn't find this book had quite the same beautifully written mix of amazing characters and sense of actually being aboard a man of war as when I sailed with Captain Jack. The Mountain of Gold and this hero, Matthew Quinton, did supply me with a satisfying amount of adventure to say that it was a book well worth reading, especially for someone who does love historical novels.
