Success will mean winning his sergeant stripes; failure, being turned over to the Tippoo's brutal executioners--or his man-eating tigers. Along the way, Sharpe keeps an eye out for beautiful prostitutes, any stray loot he can get his hands on, and the chance to learn his ABCs. But when the furious British assault on the city begins, Sharpe must fight with the fierceness and agility of a tiger himself to foil the Tippoo's well-set trap--and to keep from being killed by his own side
