Publisher's Summary

In volume II of The Flashman Papers, Flashman tangles with femme fatale Lola Montez and the dastardly Otto Von Bismarck in a battle of wits which will decide the destiny of a continent.
In this volume of The Flashman Papers, Flashman, the arch-cad and toady, matches his wits, his talents for deceit and malice, and above all his speed in evasion against the most brilliant European statesman and against the most beautiful and unscrupulous adventuress of the era.
From London gaming halls and English hunting fields to European dungeons and throne rooms, he is involved in a desperate succession of escapes, disguises, amours, and (when he cannot avoid them) hand-to-hand combats. All the while the destiny of a continent rests on his broad and failing shoulders.


What the Critics Say

"Sparkling one-liners adorn every chapter.... It is the verve of the storytelling, together with the verbal inventiveness, that lingers in the memory." (Sunday Telegraph)

Flashy does it again!

What made the experience of listening to Royal Flash the most enjoyable?

The narrator is good but I wish they would use a female voice for the female parts as it all sounds a bit pantomime with a bloke reading female responses.

What did you like best about this story?

Continues along the Flashman route,you can't get better.

What does Colin Mace bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

He is very good and keeps the momentum going.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?


Any additional comments?
