1814: Life ashore may once again be the undoing of Captain Jack Aubrey of the Royal Navy. It is 1814; with the coming of peace and for several other reasons his future at the admiralty dim, Aubrey fears being "yellowed" - nominally promoted to the rank of admiral without a squadron to command. But no sooner has his fellow adventurer Dr. Stephen Maturin turned up with a prospective mission than Aubrey receives an urgent dispatch ordering him to Gibraltar: Napoleon has escaped from Elba.
