Sharpe's Prey Summary

Sharpe's Prey by Bernard Cornwell

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.
