Dear Mr Cornwell, I came across your Sharpe books quite by mistake, but what a mistake! I then read all of the Sharpe series one after the other, often reading a book in one sitting. I very recently came across Sharpes Havoc. A tremendous surprise! For some reason I thought Sharpe was finished! I thought I would give Gallows Thief a try over Christmas and I just could not put it down. Wasn't it just like that green jacketed rifle officer to help Sandman out when he was in trouble?! Excellent! Did you know that Brian Lavery in 'Jack Aubrey Commands' says "The best fictional account of Trafalgar comes in a military novel- Sharpe's Trafalgar." Many thanks and please keep up the good work. Nathan
I didn't, but I'm delighted to hear it! Thank you.
