Publisher's Summary

Flashman must choose - politcs in London or slave trading in Africa - not that it matters really in this hilarious third installement of the Flashman Papers.

When Flashman was inveigled into a game of pontoon with Disraeli and Lord George Bentinck, he was making an unconscious choice about his own future - would it lie in the House of Commons or the West African slave trade? Was there, for that matter, very much difference?

Once again Flashman's charm, cowardice, treachery, lechery, and fleetness of foot see the lovable rogue triumph by the skin of his chattering teeth.

What the Critics Say

"The Flashman books bristle with action…and they are very, very funny." (The Times)
"George Macdonald Fraser is going great guns, and, happy thought, he still has some fifty years of the rascal's misdeeds to regale us with." (Daily Telegraph)

    "Another superb Flashman tale beautifuly narrated "

    I have read all the Flashman books several times and it is a pleasure listening to such a good "voice actor". The only thing I miss is the foot notes which were a great part of the text

    Story
    "Flashman is a rotter"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you get past Flashman being simply awful, the story is wonderful. The historic detail brings the world to life.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Probably the East Coast of Africa. I'll say no more.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed out loud a couple of times when in the company of others after Flashman did something terrible (again).

    Story
    "The tlaws of a cad whispered by a blaggard!"

    Cringeworthy stuff still full of the character and romance of the era beautifully narrated by a totally convincing Flashman type character.
