"The greatest writer of historical adventures today." —Washington Post Critically acclaimed, perennial New York Times bestselling author Bernard Cornwell (Agincourt, The Fort, the Saxon Tales) makes real history come alive in his breathtaking historical fiction. Praised as "the direct heir to Patrick O'Brian" (Agincourt, The Fort), Cornwell has brilliantly captured the fury, chaos, and excitement of battle as few writers have ever done—perhaps most vividly in his phenomenally popular novels following the illustrious military career of British Army officer Richard Sharpe during the late 18th and early 19th centuries. In Sharpe's Prey, Sharpe must prove his mettle once again after performing courageously on Wellesley's battlefields in India and the Iberian Peninsula, as he undertakes a secret mission to Copenhagen, Denmark in 1807 to prevent a resurgent Napoleon from capturing the Danish fleet. Perhaps the San Francisco Chronicle said it best: "If only all history lessons could be as vibrant."

Richard Sharpe and the Expedition to Copenhagen, 1807 The year is 1807, and Richard Sharpe is back in England, where his career seems to have come to a dead end, despite his heroics in Britain\'s recent victory at Trafalgar. Loveless, destitute, and relegated to the menial tasks of quartermaster, Sharpe roams the streets of London, pondering a bleak future away from the army. Then, out of the blue, an old friend invites him to undertake a secret mission -- the delivery of a bribe -- to the Danish capital, Copenhagen. Denmark is officially neutral, but Napoleon is threatening an invasion in order to capture the powerful Danish fleet, which would replace the ships France lost in its disastrous defeat at Trafalgar. The British, fearing such enhancement of French power, threaten their own preemptive invasion, and Sharpe, whose errand seemed so simple, is trapped in a web of treachery that will end only when the city, which thought itself safe, is subjected to a brutal and merciless bombardment.

«Ορκίστηκα να πάρω εκδίκηση για τον θάνατο του πατέρα μου. Μπορεί να ’μαι μισός άντρας, αλλά ο όρκος που πήρα ήταν ολόκληρος». Αδύναμος κι ανάξιος στα μάτια του πατέρα του, ο πρίγκιπας Γιάρβι είναι ολομόναχος σ’ έναν κόσμο που κυβερνάται από σιδηρά χέρια και ψυχρές καρδιές. Ανίκανος να κρατήσει ασπίδα ή να χειριστεί πέλεκυ, πρέπει ν’ ακονίσει τον νου του μέχρι να γίνει το φονικότερο απ’ όλα τα όπλα. Όταν η τραγωδία και οι δολοπλοκίες τον ξεριζώνουν από τη ζωή που γνώριζε, ο Γιάρβι ορκίζεται ν’ ανακτήσει έναν θρόνο που ποτέ δεν επιθύμησε. Πρώτα όμως πρέπει να επιβιώσει από τη σκληρότητα, τις αλυσίδες και τα πικρά νερά της Τσακισμένης Θάλασσας – κι όλα αυτά με μονάχα ένα γερό χέρι.
