Sharpe and Harper return to England to save the South Essex Regiment from being disbanded. While there Sharpe is surprised to discover he’s the Prince Regent’s best friend, though they've never met before. Through the Prince he meets the dastardly Lord Fenner and the lovely Lady Anne who seem to be working together to thwart Sharpe’s plan. Seems the replacement troops are nowhere to be found, even if Sharpe has proof they’re being recruited. How can Sharpe find out what’s really going on? Only one way to do it, he and Harper enlist again in the Army. So what does Sharpe find there? An old enemy and a new love.
