Publisher Description

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

Portugal, 1811

Captain Richard Sharpe’s renegade ways leave him discarded by his regiment and waging a war against a private Portuguese enemy – one fought through the burning, pillaged streets of Coimbra.

Forced to retreat across treacherous terrain, the British army prepare vast defences at the Lines of Torres Vedras – their greatest secret and their last hope of stopping the French reaching Lisbon. And risking everything to re-join his regiment, and lead the army into battle once more, is Sharpe . . .

‘A master storyteller’ DAILY TELEGRAPH

Reviews

‘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
