Sharpe's Prey

Sharpe's Prey - Bernard Cornwell 1807 - Russia has told France it can have the Danish fleet, but no-one has asked the Danes about it.
Britain sends envoys to try and get them to send the fleet to England for safety, or failing that to threaten to take it.

Sharpe is sent along to protect one of those envoys, but things don't go to plan.

As the story unfolds, Sharpe has to try and also save one of the Danes who sends Britain information, but other people want the information he has for their own countries.

Plenty of action and well written characters.
