    Sharpe has been sent by Wellington on a mission to Cádiz, now the capital of Spain, to rescue the British ambassador - who happens to be Wellington’s brother - from a spot of undiplomatic trouble. The city has been blockaded by the French but is supported by the British from the sea. It contains a rare mix of pro- and anti-British citizens, diplomats, courtiers, adventurers, and spies. Sharpe’s mission - complicated, undercover, and political - turns out to be completely different from the one on which he was sent.
