Summary

The prequel to the series, describing Sharpe’s experiences in India. When a senior British officer is captured by the Tippoo of Mysore’s forces, Sharpe is offered a chance to attempt a rescue, which in turn offers an escape from the tyrannical Sergeant Obadiah Hakeswill. But in fleeing Hakeswill, Sharpe enters the exotic and dangerous world of the Tippoo. An adventure that will require all of his wits just to stay alive, let alone save the British army from catastrophe. 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.

"Cornwell's narration is quite masterly and supremely well-researched." ( Observer)

An enjoyable trip of nostalgia.

This brought back memories of when I was a kid when me and my dad would watch Sharpe together on TV. Hearing Sean Bean's voice again as Richard Sharpe as well as his take on the other characters was an absolute joy to hear. The only thing that could make this audio version even better would be if they played the theme tune at the start of the book, but I might as well watch the series for that.
