Waterstones Says

The first instalment of a legendary historical adventure series finds Richard Sharpe engaged in a last ditch rescue attempt in Mysore. Blessed with Cornwell’s eye for deft period detail and gift for thrilling description of battle, Sharpe’s Tiger ensures the exploits of our maverick hero hit the ground running.

*The brand new novel, SHARPE'S ASSASSIN, is available to pre-order now*

Sharpe's Tiger is the brilliant beginning of Sharpe's adventures

India, 1799

The citadel of Seringapatam is under siege. Navigating this dangerous kingdom of bejewelled palaces and poverty, Private Richard Sharpe embarks on a rescue mission to save a senior officer from the clutches of the Tippoo of Mysore - and oust the Sultan from his throne.

The fortress of Mysore is considered impregnable, but one of the greatest threats comes from betrayal within the British ranks. And the man to outwit enemies from both sides is Sharpe . . .

'The best battle scenes of any writer I've ever read, past or present. Cornwell really makes history come alive.' George R.R. Martin
