The title of this novel, the nineteenth in O'Brian's seafaring saga, refers to the hundred-day reign of Napoleon after his escape from Elba in March 1815 until his defeat at Waterloo. For his narration of O'Brian's seafaring saga featuring Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin, Patrick Tull is the undisputed master and commander. Tull, who has also read the Brother Cadfael and Horace Rumpole mystery series for Recorded Books, provides a seasoned and seaworthy tone of authority, colored with his understanding of O'Brian's wry and playful sense of humor. This installment takes the British sea captain and his scholarly friend into Balkan battlefields, north African mountains and Muslim caravan routes. S.E.S.
