Publisher Description

Coward, scoundrel, lover and cheat, but there is no better man to go into the jungle with. Join Flashman in his adventures as he survives fearful ordeals and outlandish perils across the four corners of the world.

A hasty retreat from the boudoir would normally suffice when caught with a wanton young wife. But when her husband turns out to be a high court judge, a change of continents is called for, as Flashman sets off to America again.

Reviews

‘If ever there was a time when I felt that watcher-of-the-skies-when-a-new-planet stuff, it was when I read the first Flashman’
P.G. Wodehouse

'There is a little of Flashman in all of us – but not enough.'
Evening Standard

'The Flashman Papers do what all great sagas do – winning new admirers along the way but never, ever betraying old ones. It is an immense achievement.'
Sunday Telegraph

'In our crass, humourless, anaemic, politically correct age, there could be no better tonic or treat than the outrageous Flashy's bold descriptions of action in battle or bedroom. To relish George MacDonald Fraser is to rediscover the joy of reading.'
Daily Telegraph

‘Everything we expect from a Flashman adventure is here: lechery, double-crossing, real people, the epic poltroonery from which Flashman emerges as saviour of the hour…my one complaint about the series – surely the great mock-historical romp of the past half-century – is that MacDonald Fraser does not add to it often enough.'
Mail on Sunday

’Thanks to Fraser’s passion for history, his rare gift for rattling narrative and his infectious delight in robust, rollicking language, we can rejoice in a work of genius worthy of being ranked with – there can be no higher accolade – P.G. Wodehouse’
Daily Telegraph

Mike Olley ,

Offensive, Objectionable, Obsene

For those of you with a sensitive disposition who claim to dislike ... say slavery, yet buy the cheap clothes of its industry, you won't like this book. It uses words that the sensitive class seek to ban from the months of the working folk. Whilst adorning themselves in the products of slavery and misery.

For people who don't like the "N" word spoken or written, this is not a book for them. I would urge those types to protest outside the performances of certain artists, just for the sake of consistency, please.

No for many this is a terrible blunt book that if you take life too seriously please avoid. Leave it for those of us who wish to escape and enjoy life as it probably is for some.

By the way the interpretation of history in this book is smashing and who probably accurate. Even.
