In 1777, Jack Absolute is famous ... as the dashing lover in Sheridan's famous comedy THE RIVALS. However, this notoriety comes as something of a shock to the REAL Jack Absolute when he disembarks at Portsmouth after four months at sea, and seven years in India... Thus we meet the dashing Mister Absolute - rogue, duellist, charmer and Captain in the Light Dragoons. He is everything that Sharpe is not, he is both the epitome of the English gentleman and his nemesis. He leaves behind him a trail of cuckolded husbands, excited lovers and dead bodies... In the War of Independence, Jack has to leave London in a hurry after a duel goes hideously wrong. But he soon finds himself in a fight for his life in the colonies.
