Taking Richard Sharpe to St Helena and Chile, this is an adventure story in the classic tradition. Read by the star of TV's Sharpe series, Sean Bean. 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. So it is that reluctant 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! Soldier, hero, rogue -- Sharpe is the man you always want on your side. Born in poverty, he joined the army to escape jail and climbed the ranks by sheer brutal courage. He knows no other family than the regiment of the 95th Rifles whose green jacket he proudly wears.

From the Back Cover:

Be prepared for scenes of great action & heroics

"Then why go to an enemy harbor?" asked Sharpe.
"To capture it, of course, why else?" Cochrane looked at Sharpe as though the Rifleman was mad. "We've got a ship, we've got men, we've got weapons, so what the hell else should we be doing?"
"But the ship is sinking."
"Then the bloody ship might as well do something useful before it vanishes."
Sharpe had met Spain's devil, and his name was Cochrane.
