Major Richard Sharpe awaits the opening shots of the army's campaign with grim expectancy. For victory depends on the increasingly fragile alliance between Britain and Spain - an alliance that must be maintained at any cost. Pierre Ducos, the wily French intelligence officer, sees a chance both to destroy the alliance and to achieve a personal revenge on Richard Sharpe. And when the lovely spy La Marquesa takes a hand in the game, Sharpe finds himself enmeshed in a web of political intrigue for which his military expertise has left him fatally unprepared.
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)

One of the best in the series. Almost matches Sharpe's Enemy and the fantastic narration by Rupert Farley who outdid himself reading the dying Hakeswell . Sharpe in this one goes off with a fortune - wonder if he'll buy himself a watch (doubt it)
