Publisher's Summary

A game of cards leads Flashman from the jungle death-house of Dahomey to the slave state of Mississippi as he dabbles in the slave trade in Volume III 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.

Hoorah for Flashy!

I have loved the Fashion books for many years, so it's pretty certain I'd love the audiobook. And I did - wonderfully read.

This, like all the Fashion stories, is a brilliant story. The history is accurate, Flashman is a brilliant anti-hero, and the escapades he lands himself in - usually on account of chasing a woman - are just fabulous.

A real ribald romp of a book - brilliant!
