This is good, vintage Sharpe, cocking his considerable snook at the usual authorities, hauled over the coals by Wellington, carrying all before him as the maverick officer risen from the ranks of the Duke's army. In this instalment Sharpe comes up against a ferocious partisan and a local legend of Aztec gold. Irish actor Daragh O'Malley is joined by the wonderful Rosaleen Linehan and Jayne Ashbourne as her comely daughter in a performance marred by a really terrible leprechaun accent and not helped by her slightly cringe-making, hard-riding, sharp-shooting character. The music by the wonderfully talented John Tams is as always one of the high points of the show.
