About the Author:

Bernard Cornwell was born in London, raised in Essex, and now lives mainly in the USA with his wife. In addition to the hugely successful Sharpe novels, Bernard Cornwell is the author of the Starbuck Chronicles, the Warlord trilogy, the Grail Quest series, the Alfred series and standalone battle books Azincourt and The Fort.

From AudioFile:

The fifth book in the military adventure series about Richard Sharpe, this novel concerns a band of deserters who hold Lady Farthingale (wife of Sharpe's superior) and other women hostage along the Spanish-Portuguese border during the winter of 1812. Frederick Davidson performs superbly. The hardness and hauteur of his syllable-precise delivery render well the rigid hierarchies and varied personalities of military life. For fans of the series, Davidson's readings may be definitive. G.H. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
