Publisher Description

From New York Times bestselling author Bernard Cornwell, another exciting adventure in the world-renowned Sharpe series, chronicling the rise of Richard Sharpe, a Private in His Majesty’s Army at the siege of Seringapatam.

Five years after the Battle of Waterloo, Sharpe’s peaceful retirement in Normandy is shattered. An old friend, Don Blas Vivar, is missing in Chile, reported dead at rebel hands – a report his wife refuses to believe. She appeals to Sharpe to find out the truth.

Sharpe, along with Patrick Harper, find themselves bound for Chile via St. Helena, where they have a fateful meeting with the fallen Emperor Napoleon. Convinced that they are on their way to collect a corpse, neither man can imagine that dangers that await them in Chile…

"There's no way I would've read something like this normally. Never quite got the ITV historical drama with Sean Bean, but my father-in-law recommended it and being a fan of the Flashman books (which does the same 'putting a fictional character into real events' kinda thing) I was willing to give it a go. And I have to say it's blooming marvellous. A rip-roaring read."

    " The last Sharpe novel, chronologically, and for me, the most disappointing. The story wasn't as engaging as the earlier stories, and it seems that Bernard Cornwell was just going through the motions with this one. Undoubtedly he is capable of writing much better, and I'm glad that the rest of the Sharpe books were such a pleasure to read. If you've read the previous 20 Sharpe books, then of course you'll read this one as well, and while it's far from being bad, it won't hit you between the eyes like some of the others. "

    " Napoleon is exiled to St Helena and the war in Europe is over. That does not mean that the world is at peace and Richard Sharpe is off to Chile to find a friend lost in a Chilean war for independence from Spain. The last book in the series and it is time to say good bye to Sharpe. Makes me sad. "

    " As usual, Cornwell brings history alive, this time in Chile. Sharpe's Devil is the story of Chilean Admiral Thomas Cochrane's campaign to drive the Spanish out of Chile during its revolution, with Sharpe and Harper's help of course. "

    " That's it, after this there are no more. (unless Cornwell takes pity on us and sharpens his pencil - see what I did there?) Not one of the better stories, although it's nice to get a bit of Sharpe after the whole Peninsular War thing. "
