A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. Aubrey and Maturin return home to England, where the surgeon-cum-intelligence-agent discovers that his wife has disappeared. As if such a domestic crisis weren't enough, the intrepid pair are also dispatched to the Gulf of Guinea to suppress the slave trade and to Ireland to rebuff an impending French invasion.
