Publisher's Summary

In Volume II of the Flashman Papers, Flashman tangles with femme fatale Lola Montez and the dastardly Otto Von Bismarck in a battle of wits which will decide the destiny of a continent. In this volume of The Flashman Papers, Flashman, the arch-cad and toady, matches his wits, his talents for deceit and malice, and above all his speed in evasion against the most brilliant European statesman and against the most beauiful and unscrupulous adventuress of the era. From London gaming-halls and English hunting-fields to European dungeons and throne-rooms, he is involved in a desperate succession of escapes, disguises, amours and (when he cannot avoid them) hand-to-hand combats. All the while, the destiny of a continent rests on his broad and failing shoulders.

What the Critics Say

"Sparkling one-liners adorn every chapter…. It is the verve of the story-telling, together with the verbal inventiveness, that lingers in the memory." (Sunday Telegraph)

quality!

What did you love best about Royal Flash?

what a persona. great fun, gallops along.


What other book might you compare Royal Flash to and why?

all the flashman books are so well paced.


Would you listen to another book narrated by Rupert Penry-Jones?

am didnt feel he got the persona as well as the late great david case but the abridgment does take from a very detailed book. why is it abridged? and the footnotes appeared to be ignored altogether.


Any additional comments?

great fun, we need more!
