Publisher Comments:

With Wellington outnumbered, the bankrupt army's only hope of avoiding, collapse is a hidden cache of Portuguese gold.  Only Captain Richard Sharpe is capable of stealing it—and it means turning against his own men.

Edward Hahn, June 9, 2011 (view all comments by Edward Hahn)
Taking place in 1809, this is the ninth book chronologically in the Richard Sharpe series. In my opinion it is the worst of the nine.

Sharpe, as usual, has more problems with his own people than with the French enemy. In this story he encounters an arrogant provost, a religious zealot, an unsympathetic General and a Spanish ally who wants him dead.

Also, as usual, he meets a beautiful woman whom he falls in love with but can never have because he is a soldier and must move on.

He survives numerous wounds and is twice rescued as he faces almost certain death.

While these are elements in all of the previous books in the series, in this tale they come across as formulaic rather than spontaneous thereby ruining the fun and the suspense.

Though I give the book only 3 stars, nevertheless it is an exciting story. Since I read this volume, I have read the rest of the 21 book series and most of them are full of exuberance and excitement. Do not stop here.
