Description

SHARPE’S GOLD by Bernard Cornwell (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).

“This is a rousing book for blood-and-gore addicts and armchair generals.” (West Coast Review of Books)

In 1810, Wellington’s army is on the brink of collapse. But Wellington has one hope left: in the dangerous Portuguese hills lies a fortune in gold, enough perhaps to turn the Peninsular War around. And he knows one fighting man capable of stealing it: Captain Richard Sharpe.

Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.

NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Earphones®-winning narrator Frederick Davidson. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.

“A hero in the mold of James Bond.” (Philadelphia Inquirer)

Only a year after its stunning victory at Talavera in July of 1809, Wellington’s Peninsular army—vastly outnumbered, its coffers empty—is on the brink of collapse. The Spanish government has fallen, and the last Spanish armies have been crushed by the French. But Wellington has one hope left: in the dangerous Portuguese hills lies a fortune in gold, enough gold perhaps to turn the Peninsular War around. And he knows of one fighting man capable of stealing it: Captain Richard Sharpe of the South Essex Regiment.

This installment in the best-selling historical fiction series takes the charismatic Richard Sharpe all the way from Talavera (Sharpe’s Eagle) to the glory of Waterloo, on a secret mission that is unlike any form of warfare Sharpe has known in his long and embattled career as a soldier fighting his way up through the ranks.
