Publisher's Summary

This ninth volume of The Flashman Papers, faithfully edited and transcribed by Fraser, finds that Sir Harry Flashman is back in India, where his saga began.
This time, our hero is sent by Her Majesty's Secret Service to spy on the corrupt court of Lahore, on India's Northwest Frontier. Flashy's most challenging exploit yet is as politically shrewd and thoroughly lewd as ever.
©2010 Random House Audio; 1992 George MacDonald Fraser

Flashy is Magnificent, Narration is Superb!

Flashman is a scoundrel, a rogue, a coward, and a philanderer, and I thoroughly adore him! David Case's rendition of this classic heroic villain is simply inspired. The way he renders Flashman's alarmed and yet hilariously sardonic observations in this deadpan voice is just perfect. I found myself laughing out loud at the combination of Fraser's wordcraft and Case's performance in many places.

You'll likely find this story more enjoyable if you are fond of anti-heroes, if you like dry British humor, and you have a yen for adventures. Flashman travels around the globe having wildly improbably adventures (this time in India), having sex with all the women he's physically able to, and being given credit he absolutely does not deserve for heroic feats he did his best to avoid performing.

I love, love, love this book, and all the others in the Flashman series.

A great romp through British India

Flashy is back in the saddle providing a delicious backstory to an enjoyable history lesson. David Case does a marvelous job with the male characters (his women need a bit of work). Great fun.

The worst reading i have ever heard

This is one of the best Flashman books and it has been ruined by this chaps sneering down his nose in the most dreadful manner. He completely misses the point and it is unbearable.
As said in the other review Timothy West was fantastic and enhanced the Flashman stories brilliantly. If he is no longer available surely someone can do better than this....

Come back Timothy West!!!!

If you know and love Timothy West's readings of the Flashman books then avoid this book. The reader is completely awful and has ruined one of Flashman's best. He has a synical, hard delivery which makes Flashman seem a really hateful. Come to think of it if you haven't listened to the Timothy West's version then get it because I guarentee you'll see what I mean. TRUELY APPALLING RECORDING OF A WONDERFUL STORY
