The greatest threat to Wellington’s Salamanca Campaign is not Napoleon’s Army but France’s deadliest assassin. He’s already failed to kill Captain Richard Sharpe once. Now he’s getting a second chance.

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.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by R. August | 2/16/2014

    " It took over a year to read this one - started it in August 2010. I finally got fed up with the cookie-cutter plot of Sharpe finding "the most beautiful woman in the world," bedding her, then moving on to the next book only to find another "most beautiful woman in the world." The biggest redeemer of this book was when Sharpe caught the French soldier's eye and they both shrugged at each other over the absurdity of war as they marched past each other at the battle of Salamanca. Will finish the series, but at a year a book it might take some time. "

    " Sharpe is married and has his first affair ,fast paced as the other novels "

    " This late in the series, books about Richard Sharpe hold very few suprises. In fact, it is very hard for me to say anything else about 'Sharpe's Sword' but that its plot is once again formulaic, repetitive and perdictable. However, strange as it may seem, these rather negative qualities don't mean that it's a boring or bad book. Bernard Cornwell's writing style keeps this book alive and if you're looking for a fun, quick read, it may just hit the spot. "

    " Honestly one of the better Sharpe novels that I've read thus far. Not too much dwelling in the evil "enemy of the day" and some of the visiting characters are actually well-crafted. Also the friendship between Sharpe and Harper is developing nicely and reaches a sort of a peak in this story when Sharpe is "in trouble". "
