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. He is put on trial but escapes with Harper and Fredrickson and sets out to find the honest Major Maillot who was coerced into signing the false accusation. Ducos's men have Maillot shot but his widowed sister Lucille hides Sharpe whilst Fredrickson tracks down former foe General Calvet. 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

Did You Know?
When Frederickson falls out with Sharpe over Lucille, Sharpe is heard to say that 'We've been friends for five years'. This contradicts one of the previous movies, Sharpe's Enemy, which details the first meeting of the two men. Sharpe's Enemy was actually set in 1813 only a year before this chapter in the Sharpe series. See more
