Following the popularity of the memoirs of Harry Flashman, the Victorian scoundrel who got himself embroiled in many events of his age, this book introduces a new generation of the family: Thomas Flashman, whose career covers the Napoleonic and Georgian era. This first book covers his adventures with Thomas Cochrane, one of the most extraordinary naval commanders of all time. From the brothels and gambling dens of London, through political intrigues and espionage, the action moves to the Mediterranean and the real life character of Thomas Cochrane. This book covers the start of Cochrane's career including the most astounding single ship action of the Napoleonic war. Thomas Flashman provides a unique insight as danger stalks him like a persistent bailiff through a series of adventures that prove history really is stranger than fiction.

Brilliant addition to the Flashman universe
Not the same as original Flashy but entertaining
Came across some historical characters I had not heard of before
It carefully wove the fiction and historical events together. I checked on most and the book was clearly well researched. Not as comedic as GMFs Flashman but an interesting start setting the scene for a good series hope the other books are put on audible
not listened to others
listened on the commute to work but could have done this in 1 or 2 sittings
Hope the rest of the series is made available soon
