Captain Jack Aubrey is ashore on half pay without a command, until Stephen Maturin arrives with secret orders for Aubrey to take a frigate to the Cape of Good Hope under a commodore's pennant, there to mount an expedition against the French-held islands of Mauritius and La Réunion. But the difficulties of carrying out his orders are compounded by two of his own captains—Lord Clonfert, a pleasure-seeking dilettante, and Captain Corbett, whose severity pushes his crew to the verge of mutiny. O'Brian's sheer brilliance as a writer constantly dazzles. —Irish Times.

I tend toward rating this series more for their overall enjoyment rather than their individual attributes. I'm not sure if this one really earned its 4 star rating, I thought it spent way too much time with Maturin and his ramblings and not enough time with Jack and his action.
Still, this is a stellar series and I highly recommend it.
