Cornwell's beloved hero, Richard Sharpe, is sent from England to Denmark on a secret mission. But as England and France fight over the powerful Danish fleet, Sharpe finds himself trapped in the war-torn city of Copenhagen.

"Lieutenant Richard Sharpe accompanies the British fleet to Denmark in 1807, ostensibly to defend that country's navy from a Napoleonic takeover. When his commanding officer betrays him and the Crown, however, the Battle of Copenhagen nearly destroys that city. Patrick Tull's gritty cynicism brings life to Sharpe and his compatriots, both heroic and less so. Tull's barely perceptible softening of his voice clearly conveys the sweetness of Sharpe's love interest, while a slight sharpening of tone renders a female French spy equally believable. While Cornwell's text lacks some of its usual tempo in spots, Tull more than compensates in his performance, working with the author to bring history to life. R.P.L.
