    Sharpe's mission had seemed simple: capture a small unguarded French coastal fort, cripple Napoleon's supply lines, and retreat across the sea. But behind the lines, Sharpe's old enemy, Pierre Ducos, awaits Sharpe's arrival with a battalion of French soldiers and a vicious commanding general who keeps the scalps of his dead enemies as trophies.

    Sonny Lofthus is a strangely charismatic and complacent young man. Sonny’s been in prison for a dozen years, nearly half his life. The inmates who seek out his uncanny abilities to soothe leave his cell feeling absolved. They don’t know or care that Sonny has a serious heroin habit - or where or how he gets his uninterrupted supply of the drug. Or that he’s serving time for other peoples’ crimes. Sonny took the first steps toward addiction when his father took his own life rather than face exposure as a corrupt cop. Now Sonny is the seemingly malleable center of a whole infrastructure of corruption....

    What did you love best about A Plunder of Souls?

    I liked the storyline which included famous names from our past. To think that our nations history could have been affected by supernatural events is most interesting storyline


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Plunder of Souls?

    The battle in the wharehouse with the shades was a battle royal, and kept me listening till I had to stop.


    What does Jonathan Davis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mr Davis has an ability to bring to life his various characters and his accents are more than enough to put you in the time frame of old America


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Many, but highs and lows, I enjoyed the story and look forward to the next one, the end left us thinking all is not finished

    I must admit that the storyline had me interested to the point I blew thru this book alittle faster than I wanted, That means it ended too soon and I wanted more


    What does Jeff Harding bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

While the crew of L'Aurore can look forward to liberty and prize money, a shadow hangs over their captain: the impending court martial of his one-time commander, Commodore Popham, who led a doomed attack on South America. Following Nelson's death two years earlier, England is in desperate need of heroes and Kydd's Caribbean exploits are the talk of London.
