Sharpe is tasked to protect the most important spy in Lord Wellington's network, but domestic issues, a traumatized young girl, and possible French spies all threaten his success.
Did You Know?
When Sharpe tells Harris to go home and write a book with lots of shooting in it and he will become a rich man. This is a direct reference to what some of the 95th Soldiers did do after the wars were over, and some did indeed become rich, due to the hero status that riflemen had at the time. One of those was Rifleman Benjamin Harris, who the character is loosely based on (though he is not actually meant to be the real Harris). An audio-book version of Benjamin Harris's 'Recollections' has been recorded by Jason Salkey, who plays his fictional alter ego in the Sharpe films. See more
