The Best Action Hero... Ever!

Through the years there have been a lot of great heroic characters created by a lot of great adventure writers. For me, there are several who stand out. Nelson DeMille created a character named John Corey for his novel 'Plum Island'. Corey is a tough sarcastic cop.. and the kind of guy every reader wishes they were like.
Wilbur Smith created a character named Harry Fletcher for his novel, 'Eye of The Tiger'. Harry was a cool kind of guy and it was one of the few novels Wilbur Wrote in first person.
But for me, the best action adventure character is Richard Sharpe, created by Bernard Cornwell.
Sharpe is the hero of over 20 novels written by Cornwell, all centred around the Napoleonic Wars. Sharpe is tough, ruthless... a genuine heroic figure.
He's also the kinda guy Todd Kent isn't!
Where Sharpe, or John Corey.. or Harry Fletcher would fight and win, poor Todd is so far out of his depth, he's in danger of drowning.

I've just posted new pages for today. Click on the 'Chapter 1' tab and scroll down to the first sentence which I have made bold.
