SHARPE IS BACK.

The global bestseller Bernard Cornwell returns with his iconic hero, Richard Sharpe. If any man can do the impossible it's Richard Sharpe . . .

Paris, 1815

Richard Sharpe is a man with a reputation. Born in the gutter, raised a foundling, he's the army's loose cannon - but also its most formidable weapon.

With violence brewing in the aftermath of Waterloo, and a secretive group of revolutionaries hell-bent on avenging Napoleon's defeat, Sharpe is called to the front line: the maze of Paris streets where lines blur between friend and foe.

And in search of a spy, he must defeat a lethal assassin determined to destroy his target, or die trying . . .

SHARPE'S ASSASSIN is the brand new novel in the bestselling historical series that has sold over 20 million copies worldwide.

Sharpe's Assassin was a Sunday Times bestseller in hardback the w/c 4th October 2021.
