9780060084530: Sharpe's Prey: The Expedition to Denmark, 1807

The eighteenth novel in this bestselling series takes Sharpe to battle in Copenhagen.

It is 1807 and Lieutenant Richard Sharpe, newly returned to England, now wants to leave the army. He is offered one last job: go to Copenhagen, help deliver a bribe and so stop a war. It seems very easy.

But nothing is easy in a Europe stirred by French ambitions. The Danes possess a battle fleet that could replace every ship the French lost at Trafalgar, and Napoleon's forces are gathering to take it. The British have to stop them, while the Danes insist on remaining neutral.

Sharpe was not sent to Copenhagen to dabble in high politics – he is there to employ the skills he learned on the streets of London's slums. Dragged into a war of spies and brutality, Sharpe finds that he is a sacrificial pawn. But pawns can sometimes change the game, and Sharpe makes his own rules. When he discovers a traitor in his midst, he becomes a hunter in a city besieged by British troops.

Copenhagen is doomed. In three nights of horror, as the city burns, Sharpe must protect a woman, find his traitor, and stay alive.

Product Description:

"The greatest writer of historical adventures today."
--Washington Post

Critically acclaimed, perennial New York Times bestselling author Bernard Cornwell (Agincourt, The Fort, the Saxon Tales) makes real history come alive in his breathtaking historical fiction. Praised as "the direct heir to Patrick O'Brian" (Agincourt, The Fort), Cornwell has brilliantly captured the fury, chaos, and excitement of battle as few writers have ever done--perhaps most vividly in his phenomenally popular novels following the illustrious military career of British Army officer Richard Sharpe during the late 18th and early 19th centuries. In Sharpe's Prey, Sharpe must prove his mettle once again after performing courageously on Wellesley's battlefields in India and the Iberian Peninsula, as he undertakes a secret mission to Copenhagen, Denmark in 1807 to prevent a resurgent Napoleon from capturing the Danish fleet. Perhaps the San Francisco Chronicle said it best: "If only all history lessons could be as vibrant."

Product Description:

The eighteenth novel in this bestselling series takes Sharpe to battle in Copenhagen, in this the sequel to Sharpe’s Trafalgar.

It is 1807 and Sharpe, back from India and Trafalgar, has joined the newly formed Greenjackets – but his career is in ruins, and his future in the army apparently hopeless.

He is rescued from disgrace by General Sir David Baird, an old comrade from India, who needs a ‘disposable’ man for a mission in Copenhagen.
An army is travelling to the Danish capital to enforce British policy, but unless Sharpe can complete the mission against enemies as subtle and clever as any he has ever faced, that army will meet disaster.
