Five years after the Battle of Waterloo, Sharpe's peaceful retirement in Normandy is shattered. An old friend, Don Blas Vivar, is missing in Chile, reported dead at rebel hands--a report his wife refuses to believe. She appeals to Sharpe to find out the truth.
Sharpe, along with Patrick Harper, finds himself bound for Chile via St. Helena, where they have a fateful meeting with the fallen emperor Napoleon. Convinced they are on their way to collect a corpse, neither man can imagine the dangers that await them in Chile.…
Soldier, hero, rogue--Sharpe is the man you always want on your side. Born in poverty, he joined the army to escape jail and climbed the ranks by sheer brutal courage. He knows no other family than the regiment of the 95th Rifles, whose green jacket he proudly wears.
"Bernard Cornwell is a literary miracle. Year after year, hail, rain, snow, war and political upheavals fail to prevent him from producing the most entertaining and readable historical novels of his generation." ( Daily Mail)
"Cornwell's narration is quite masterly and supremely well-researched." ( Observer)
"The best battle scenes of any writer I've ever read, past or present. Cornwell really makes history come alive." (George R.R. Martin)

What clever story & a fitting end to Sharpe
Brilliant & clever to again entwine real history with the story of Sharpe. Reading all the books in the right order was a great pleasure & I am looking forward to listen to more of the Bernard Cornwell books. Again the narrator Rupert Farley made the characters come to life with his understanding of the personalities & the clever accents. Fabulous last story & a fitting end for Sharpe, but I will miss him & Harper.
