Summary

Summary

In this installment of the bestselling historical fiction series featuring Major Richard Sharpe, a corrupt political enemy is determined to disband the South Essex Regiment—and to destroy Sharpe's life.

After reluctantly returning to England in order to march into France with his regiment, Sharpe discovers an illegal recruiting ring that sells soldiers like cattle to other divisions. The ringleaders know Sharpe is on their trail, and they try to kill him at every turn, determined to bring his regiment to the ground. But Sharpe is fighting for his command, and as he moves from the dark slums of London to the highest courts of political power, Sharpe will risk charges of treason and death for a final chance at revenge. Not even the influence of the Prince Regent can protect Sharpe as he undertakes the most desperate gamble of his career.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A splendid new instalment in the long-running and increasingly impressive saga.” Sunday Express
“The best thing to happen to military heroes since Hornblower.” Daily Express
“In this superb series on the Napoleonic Wars...Sharpe must return from Spain to London to investigate why his supply of recruits has dried up...The novel exposes the recruiting practices that, in fact, scandalized England and brought down prominent royal advisors. As usual, past and present sweethearts try to save Sharpe when danger threatens. Narrator-supreme Frederick Davidson provides the flavor of British life in the early 19th century on the lowest and highest levels as well as battlefield excitement as British troops cross into France from Spain. For young and old alike, this program is highly recommended.” Library Journal
“Blackstone Audio is fortunate to have a reader with such a range of emotional expression, such a knack for characterization, and such an obvious relish for the task at hand. Davidson knows the recurring characters well and has perfected their patterns of speech and delivery: he also seems to take pleasure in establishing the new characters.”  Kliatt
