"It was a bloody awful shot," Sharpe said.
"My mother could lay a gun better than that."
"I didn't think you had a mother," Private Garrard said.
"Everyone's got a mother, Tom."
"Not Sergeant Hakeswill," Garrard said, then spat a mix of dust
and spittle. . . . "Hakeswill was spawned of the devil."

Richard Sharpe—Soldier, hero, rogue—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 AudioFile:

SHARPE'S TIGER is one of the earliest in this multi-volume historical fiction series featuring the advertures of one Richard Sharpe, who rises in rank in the colonial British service from private to colonel. In it Private Sharpe is a key figure in the siege of Seringapatam on the Indian subcontinent in 1799. Chivers Audio has a knack of selecting ideally suited readers, and William Gaminara is no exception. He brings marvelous characterization to the narrative with a fully realized performance. His portrayal of the evil Sergeant Hakeswill is particularly effective. There are few ponderous messages in these books, just action-packed, bloodied history. D.R.W. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
