The citadel of Seringapatam is under siege. Navigating this dangerous kingdom of bejewelled palaces and poverty, Private Richard Sharpe embarks on a rescue mission to save a senior officer from the clutches of the Tippoo of Mysore – and oust the Sultan from his throne.
The fortress of Mysore is considered impregnable, but one of the greatest threats comes from betrayal within the British ranks. And the man to outwit enemies from both sides is Sharpe . . .
When a defector all but wipes out an unsuspecting British unit, Sergeant Richard Sharpe must hunt down the enemy within. In the sun-beaten terrain of forts and bazaars, the mission draws him into treacherous, unfamiliar territory and face to face with an old adversary. As the Mahratta rulers prepare for the white heat of battle, the small village of Assaye becomes the stage. Outnumbered and outgunned, the British face bloody defeat. But ready to step up, in a battle that could make his reputation, is Sharpe...
The British army are closing in on enemy troops in western India and Ensign Richard Sharpe, freshly promoted yet unsure of his position, finds himself vulnerable: he’s unwelcome among the officers, yet finds hidden enemies within the ranks. With no-one he can trust, Sharpe is in serious danger when an old adversary arrives on his trail – and a terrible act of betrayal draws him into the eye of the storm.
All roads lead to Gawilghur, a legendary, impregnable fortress in the sky. In the heart of enemy territory, the British carry out a near-impossible siege. And joining the front line, risking his honour and reputation in a battle that will test him as never before, is Sharpe . . .
Heading home on a merchant ship from India, Ensign Richard Sharpe finds himself on a far more dangerous journey than he could have anticipated, for war brews at sea. The formidable French navy have destroyed the British blockade and face an outnumbered but formidable foe: Admiral Nelson.
Sharpe’s meeting aboard the Calliope with the beautiful Lady Grace Hale turns quickly to obsession, but he finds unexpected enemies and deep treachery amongst his fellow passengers. And as they approach Cape Trafalgar and the enemy fleet comes into view, ready to fight in one of the most glorious but deadly clashes of the war is Sharpe . . .
When Lieutenant Richard Sharpe arrives in Copenhagen on a secret mission to help stop a war, he finds a city swarming with spies and deceit. Yet the French forces are gathering, their eyes on the Danish navy’s impressive battle fleet: one that could replace every ship they lost at Trafalgar.
The city burns, attacked by the French and besieged by the British. And discovering that he’ll have to make his own rules, fighting through the shadowy maze of friends and foes, is Sharpe . . .
