What to expect

*SHARPE’S ASSASSIN, the brand new novel in the global bestselling series, is available to buy now*

Spain, January 1812

Lieutenant Richard Sharpe faces threats from all sides when an old adversary joins the ranks. Yet, despite the risks, he must embark on a deadly mission – to capture the impenetrable fortress of Badajoz.

It’s a long, cold winter for war as the French force onwards – but Sharpe’s battle-rage burns. Only a Forlorn Hope, a near-suicidal move into the breach, will give the army hope of capturing the fortress. And boldly leading the attack is Sharpe . . .

‘A master storyteller’ DAILY TELEGRAPH

Critics Review

  • ‘Sharpe and his creator are national treasures.’ Sunday Telegraph

    ‘Bernard Cornwell is a literary miracle. Year after year, hail, rain, snow, war and political upheavals fail to prevent him from producing the most entertaining and readable historical novels of his generation.’ Daily Mail

    ‘Cornwell’s narration is quite masterly and supremely well-researched.’ Observer

    ‘The best battle scenes of any writer I’ve ever read, past or present. Cornwell really makes history come alive.’ George R.R. Martin
