Storyline

The war has ended but Jane,wearying of army life,is tricked by a greedy friend into returning to London and spending her husband's money. Meanwhile Sharpe is set up by defeated Major Ducos and charged with stealing the French imperial treasure.

Calvet allies with Sharpe to hunt down Ducos and regain the treasure. But Jane,now foolishly involved with fortune hunter Rossendale,may be harder to recapture. Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

Differences from the original novel:
  • Sharpe fights his duel against Horace Bampfylde, after a feud between the two after the events of Sharpe's Siege. The duel takes place before the morning of the battle, and Sharpe's poor aim with the pistol causes Bampfylde's wound to the buttocks.


  • Sharpe serves as Major General Nairn's aide during the Battle of Toulouse. While Major General Ross (based off of Nairn in the books) got away from the battle with only a leg wound, Nairn was killed by a bullet to the lungs.


  • Colonel Maillot was killed by Major Ducos and Sergeant Challon before the Battle of Toulouse. Sharpe and Ducos do not encounter each other during the battle.


  • The reasons for Sharpe and Frederickson's arrests are elaborated upon in the book. A letter forged by Ducos revealed that Napoleon's treasure was at the Teste de Buch defended by Sharpe during the events of Sharpe's Siege. Sharpe and Frederickson are accused of stealing the gold from the fortress for their own gain (disputed by Sharpe at the trial due to the sheer weight of it all), with damning evidence coming from the vast fortune obtained by Sharpe at Vitoria and the telescope given by Napoleon to his brother Joseph, also stolen by Sharpe at Vitoria.


  • Colonel Henri Lassan from Sharpe's Siege is the brother of Lucille Castineau, not Colonel Maillot. Lassan's mother the Dowager Countess Lassan is also present, and is killed alongside Lassan by Ducos' men.


  • Captain Peter d'Alembord accompanies Harper to England, where Harper gets horse-whipped by Lord Rossendale.


  • Lucille wounds Sharpe with three bullets from a horse pistol. While one of the bullets lodged in his thigh, another one got him in the shoulder and another sliced the top of his ear. Furthermore, Sharpe felt nothing but hatred for Madame Lucille during the first few months of his stay.


  • Frederickson finds out Ducos' location by examining records in Paris. The records led him to Major Ducos' eyeglass maker, who then directs Frederickson to Naples.


  • General Calvet is directed by Napoleon to recover the treasure from Ducos. He meets with Sharpe, Frederickson, and Harper at Naples.


  • Along with the dragoons and grasshopper gun, Ducos' villa is guarded by two fierce dogs, both wounded by Sharpe during the capture of the villa.


  • Ducos was captured inside the villa. The Cardinal's soldiers arrived under command of a Neapolitan colonel.


  • In the end, Ducos was executed by firing squad and buried in a ditch.


  • Frederickson did not learn about Sharpe and Lucille's expected child until he departed for London. The two were left on bad terms, and never reconciled as far as the novels go.

What's with Fredrickson's wig?
1 March 2004 | by (Leeds, West Yorkshire) – See all my reviews

By now, we know the drill, Sharpe gets into trouble, and he and Harper have to fight to get out of it. It could start to get formulaic, but somehow it never does. The writers did an admirable job of editing Sharpe's fortress out of this one, although Wigram's reasons for calling Sharpe out are somewhat spurious. Fredrickson stomps all over Harper as sidekick-the-audience-most-wants-for-themselves, and Lucille is just lovely

  • although I don't think I can forgive her for not being straight with


Fredrickson - she's a lot nicer in the book. Maillot deserved a bit more character development than he actually got too, but overall, not a bad effort. I really don't know what to make of Jane - she seems to have some weird deranged schizophrenic thing going on where one minute she's evil and the next confused. As much as I love Richard, I have to say he was outshone by Fredrickson in this one.
