Meet Richard Sharpe, a great British hero.

December, 1803 and Richard is now an officer. As Wellesley's army tries to end the Mahratta war, an act of treachery by Sharpe's old enemy, Sergeant Hakeswill puts him in terrible danger. He must regain his confidence and his treasure, the jewels of the Tippoo Sultan which have been stolen from him.

Sharpe's search for the thieves takes him to Gawilghur, a seemingly impregnable fortress. Inside is the renegade William Dodd, confident that no redcoat can reach him. In the horror of Gawilghur's ravine, Sharpe will fight as he has never fought before.
