Bernard Cornwell Sharpe's Fortress

SYNOPSIS

It is December, 1803, and Richard Sharpe is now an officer in Sir Arthur Wellesley's army that is seeking to end the Mahratta War. Sharpe, just risen from the ranks, discovers that his fellow-officers are not welcoming. Unsure of his authority and uncomfortable in the mess, he is failing, and his failure seems assured when he is relegated to a tedious job in the baggage train. There Sharpe discovers a treason has been' conjured up by his oldest and worst enemy, Sergeant Obadiah Hakeswill, but in uncovering this Sharpe finds himself alone and under dreadful threat. He falls back on his fighting ability to regain his confidence and his treasure, the jewels of the Tippoo Sultan, which have been stolen from him.
