The Mauritius Command

Book four in Patrick O’Brian’s Aubrey/Maturin series, this one sees Jack a little more comfortable at home, no longer on the run from his creditors, but still beached on half pay until Stephen shows up with secret orders for a mission that will take him to the Indian Ocean to lead the expedition to retake Mauritius and La Reunion from the French.

All in all it was a good book, and I’m eager to start in on the next one in a vain attempt to decrease the height of the to-be-read stack of books I’ve got.
