Flashman at his worst. But for his fans, that means he’s at his best in this, his most reckless, erotic adventure yet. Flash yearns to unclothe the wife of a man of the cloth, smuggles opium to Hong Kong, grovels to a warlord, hooks up with a lady pirate from the Amazon and offers himself as a sex toy to the world’s most stunning, and evil, woman.

As usual, Flash rises to each occasion, no matter how low he must go.

Quotes & Awards

  • “There’s a deal of shrewd observation in Flashman, and a deal of solid history in his flamboyant memoirs, factors that add weight to their dazzle. ”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “This enjoyable romp incidentally provides a wealth of historic data. Delightful fun.”

    Library Journal

  • “Extremely funny, but meticulously authentic. Between guffaws, you learn from it.”

    Washington Post

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Max | 2/3/2014

    " Less Flashy and more complex winding through China's political upheaval and mammoth 19th century rebellion, Flashman's winning wang keeps him thrusting through historical events and kept alive through a combination of luck, pluck, and one more rhyming word starting with f. The Flashman books can be divided into two camps - those where Flashman's character dictates plot changes, and the others where Flashman finds himself forced, coerced, kidnapped, or hostage-cum-witness. I find the former more intriguing, while the latter are more informative but much more dry from a narrative perspective. Still, this book achieves several distinct movements and chronicles a monumental shift in China's politics in one of the bloodiest battles in human history. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bernard Dogon | 1/31/2014

    " Kicks ass, rollicking good read about an English officer who's a total bastard yet always lands with his ass in the butter... very funny, raunchy and educational, as the author always portrays him crucial historical events that changed history. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matthew Davis | 1/16/2014

    " This is your standard Flashman fare from GMF which, like the others in the Flashman seried rarely disappoints. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Billy | 12/2/2013

    " Very entertaining...easy reading. Also, nice to read some fiction and get at least a smattering of education on some historical events. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ajj | 12/1/2013

    " This was my first taste of Flashman's adventures and it still is one of my favorites. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jonathan | 11/28/2013

    " Did not like this one as much as the others. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom | 11/15/2013

    " A fun look at China in the 19th century "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tara | 10/13/2013

    " Flashman in China during the Taiping Rebellion and the Bristish burning of the Summer Palace in Peking. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nathan | 9/28/2013

    " Flash gets caught up in the Opium Wars and meets the famous Dowager Empress of 19th C China. Usual shenanigans ensue. 3/5 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrick\ | 5/20/2013

    " Can you guess the dragon? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheila | 4/27/2013

    " One of my favourites out of the Flashman novels. Caddish, libidinous, cowardly, (all by his own admission), Flashman still is appealing and the background history is well presented "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 1/15/2013

    " Vintage Flashy, charmingly offensive in all directions. A pleasantly mild violation of all rules of PC-ness. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Smokinjbc | 12/8/2012

    " Lord, the first 3/4 was hard to get through. It picked up at the end and I found the fate of the Summer Palace to be an interesting footnote but I have to say this was my least favorite of the Flashman novels so far. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robert Jr. | 11/20/2012

    " Flashy! If you're not reading a Flashman book, you should be. And don't skip the footnotes. "
