Book Description HarperCollins Publishers. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Sharpe's Honour, Bernard Cornwell, Bold, professional, ruthless, hero and man of action 'Reluctantly, pain in his eyes, Pakenham looked at Sharpe. "Is there anything else you have to say?" Sharpe looked back defiantly. "Permission to die in my Rifleman's jacket sir." "Denied." Pakenham looked as if he wanted to add that Sharpe had disgraced his uniform, but the words would not come. "These proceedings are over." He stood, and Sharpe was led from the courtroom, his hands tied, condemned to the gallows.' Burdened under the weight of grief and guilt for actions in the past, Sharpe must lead his men in to battle once more. Victory depends on the fragile relationship between England and Spain being maintained at all costs. But this is war, and the French Intelligence officer, Pierre Ducos in an unholy alliance with the Spanish inquisitor, and his brother, the sinister Slaughterman, is determined to win for France by any method, and central to his plan is the death of Richard Sharpe. When the manipulative spy La Marquesa enters the fray, violence meets deadly intrigue and Sharpe finds himself a fugitive, hunted by foe and ally alike. A Sharpe Adventure.
