The bitter rivalry of Richard Sharpe and the ruthless French swordsman, Colonel Leroux are brought to life against the vivid canvas of the Peninsula War. Richard Sharpe is once again at war. But, this time, his enemy is a single man - the ruthless, sadistic Colonel Leroux. Sharpe's mission is to safeguard El Mirador, the spy whose network of agents is vital to the British victory. So, Sharpe must enter a new world of political and military intrigue. And, in the unfamiliar surroundings of aristocratic Spanish society, his only guide is the beautiful Marquesa - a woman with her own secrets to conceal!

Book Description Collins, London, 1983. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fair. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. Jacket illustration by Ian Robertson (illustrator). "First published in 1983 / Reprinted in 1983." Thus, the second printing. Book presents quite handsomely in near fine, price-clipped dust jacket. Public library trappings are minimal -- "Waterloo Public Library" stamp to title page; small "Withdrawn" stamp to half-title, and a very faint library stamping to top page edges. But the reason the library trappings are minimal is probably that the free front endpaper has been neatly and entirely removed, so the first page is now the half-title. A tight, square copy of the rarest of the Sharpe novels, easily read and with the pages only slightly age-toned, but definitely ex-library. The Battle of Salamanca, 1812. 319 pp. Reduced from $195.
