Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin are sailing under American colours through the Great South Sea. Stephen is charged with setting the revolutionary tinder of South America ablaze to relieve the pressure on a British government which, already engaged in a death-struggle with a Europe dominated by Napoleon, has blundered into a war with the young United States.
