SHARPE'S TIGER is one of the earliest in this multi-volume historical fiction series featuring the advertures of one Richard Sharpe, who rises in rank in the colonial British service from private to colonel. In it Private Sharpe is a key figure in the siege of Seringapatam on the Indian subcontinent in 1799. Chivers Audio has a knack of selecting ideally suited readers, and William Gaminara is no exception. He brings marvelous characterization to the narrative with a fully realized performance. His portrayal of the evil Sergeant Hakeswill is particularly effective. There are few ponderous messages in these books, just action-packed, bloodied history.
