This is one of Sharpe’s most unusual adventures. Wellington’s cousin from Ireland, Bess Nugent, and her daughter Ellie pay him a surprise visit in Spain. They are looking for Bess’s husband who has disappeared somewhere in the fog of the Peninsular War. Wellington is furious and wants to send them home, but Bess and Ellie are not easily persuaded. Meanwhile an eccentric Spanish guerilla leader, El Casco, wants to trade rifles for British deserters, and Sharpe is assigned the mission of making this happen. Back in the camp,Sharpe and Ellie find they have much in common. Where is Ellie's father, what is his connection to El Casco, and can Sharpe save them all?
