Publisher's Summary

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.

Humor, adventure, history..<br />

The fictional memoir of a British officer who is, he openly admits, a poltroon. Some of his language is offensive, so listen with headphones. Engaging tale. Terrific narration.

Totally fun

I had purchased several other of the "Flashman" novels quite some time ago and had almost forgotten what an amusing and fun listen they were. I was delighted to find this one and it certainly did not disappoint. David Case simply has to be the best narrator I have ever had the pleasure of listening to... Brilliant!!
