It is 1807 and Sharpe, back from India and Trafalgar, has joined the newly formed Greenjackets, but his career is in ruins, and his future in the army apparently hopeless.He is rescued from disgrace by General Sir David Baird, an old comrade from India, who needs a "disposable" man for a mission in Copenhagen. An army is travelling to the Danish capital to enforce British policy, but unless Sharpe can complete the mission against enemies as subtle and clever as any he has ever faced, that army will meet disaster.
"What a very fine writer Mr Cornwell has become." (The Economist)
"All the perfect ingredients for an action-packed and page-turning read." (The Times)
"The novel has plenty of action sequences, plenty of well-researched historical titbits, but the true glory of the Sharpe books lies in their characterisation." (Sunday Telegraph)
