When his honor and reputation are at stake, Sharpe seeks revenge—at any cost.

It is 1814, and the defeat of Napoleon seems imminent—if the well-protected city of Toulouse can be conquered. For Richard Sharpe, the battle turns out to be one of the bloodiest of the Peninsula Wars, and he must draw on his last reserves of strength to lead his troops to victory.

But before Sharpe can lay down his sword, he must fight a different sort of battle. Accused of stealing Napoleon’s personal treasure, Sharpe escapes from a British military court and embarks on the battle of his life, armed only with the unflinching resolve to protect his honor.

    " Great finish to the Sharpe series. Or it it? Sharpe fights in the battle of Toulouse at the closing days of the Napoleonic Wars only to face a court-martial over being accused of stealing Napoleon's personal treasure. Now, he is being hunted by his own army as he fights to clear his name. But it's not over yet. Napoleon will come back from his exile on Elba to face his Waterloo. And Sharpe will return. "
