*SHARPE’S ASSASSIN, the brand new novel in the global bestselling series, is available to buy now*
Spain, March 1811
Cadiz is under siege – the last city standing in France’s conquest of Spain. So Captain Richard Sharpe must navigate the spymasters and murderous factions within its walls – and see off deadly threats from more than one enemy.
Deserted by their ailing Spanish allies, the British are heavily outnumbered as they prepare to halt the French at Barrosa – their last chance of liberating the fortress city of Cadiz. And ready to face his old enemy in battle is Sharpe . . .
