The inimitable and appallingly appealing Flashy is back, in a long-awaited new installment of The Flashman Papers.

When the memoirs of Sir Harry Flashman, the notorious Victorian soldier and scoundrel, first came to light thirty years ago, it was finally revealed what had become of the infamous bully who had darkened Tom Brown’s school days. Now, three new episodes in the career of this eminently disreputable adventurer place us at the center of pivotal historical events—the attempted assassination of Emperor Franz Josef in the 1880s, the Prince of Wales’s involvement in the Tranby Croft gambling scandal, and the military disaster at Rorke’s Drift in South Africa—as the aging but agile Flashy is pitted against one of the greatest villains of his day. Thrown into contact with assorted grand royalty and even grander tarts, he must test his wits against political heavyweights, including Bismarck, as he becomes eyewitness to the uncensored truth about two of the greatest heroes of his time.

Superb entertainment—all verve, dash, meticulous historical detail, and wildly infectious enthusiasm.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Nathan | 2/9/2014

    " The last of the Flashmans is a set of a novella and two short stories. Flashman is an old man in these and they don't feature the same sort of rollickingness of earlier stories. The second one in particular is very flat. I'll be sorry to see the cowardly fool go, mind. Rated M for some violence, sex scenes and adult themes. 3/5 "

    " Flashman and the Tiger is the penultimate Flashman book and it's a collection of two novellas and a short story. It's also the driest of all the Flashman books, by far. One of the novellas is about a Baccarat Scandal, of all things. Flashman, sad to say, is most at home at war, or at least skullduggery. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Christa | 1/3/2014

    " By far the worst of the Flashman series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Bernard Dogon | 1/2/2014

    " 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. "
