Publisher's Summary

Colonel Leroux is killing Britain's most valuable spies, and it's up to Richard Sharpe to stop him. Thrust into the unfamiliar world of political and military intrigue, Sharpe must tangle with La Marquesa, a beguiling, extraordinarily beautiful woman whose embrace is as calculating as it is passionate. As she leads him through a maze of secrecy, cunning, and deception, Sharpe relentlessly pursues Leroux, determined to exact his revenge with the cold steel of his sword.

Sharpe's Sword

Another great story from Bernard Cornwell. Cornwell is the master of battle scenes and he brings the battle field to life in this book. I believe this is the first book that he had Sharpe ride in a Calvary charge; Cornwell made me feel as if I was on a horse in the charge! Frederick Davidson did a great job narrating the story. Sharpe wanted Colonel Leroux sword but I was disappointed that in the end he did not keep it or give it to Theresa. In the epilogue I enjoyed Cornwell's description of what the city and area is like today. I would love to take a trip to Portugal and Spain following battles of the French and British.

Definitely a

Many graphic battle scenes with accompanying battle strategies and blood and guts descriptions appeal more to men than women, I suspect. Good plot and appealing hero.
