Sharpe must do battle with a gang of deserters, led by the evil Hakeswill, who has taken hostages -- including Isabella, the wife of the English Colonel, Sir Arthur Farthingdale. Sharpe is sent with the ransom money. However, Sergeant Hakeswill tricks Sharpe and insists that the ransom be doubled. Sharpe leads an attack to free Isabella and destroy the force of deserters who, Wellington fears, pose a threat to the discipline of his men.
