Product description

Coward, scoundrel, lover and cheat, but there is no better man to go into the jungle with. Join Flashman in his adventures as he survives fearful ordeals and outlandish perils across the four corners of the world. Can a man be all bad? When Harry Flashman's adventures as the reluctant secret agent in Afghanistan lead him to join the exclusive company of Lord Cardigan's Hussars and play a part in the disastrous Retreat from Kabul, it culminates in the rascal's finest - and most dishonest - turn.

Review quote

'Flashman is a wonderful creation, by a master storyteller. We'll forever delight in his evil antics' JEFFREY ARCHER 'Politically incorrect, lascivious and fiendishly handsome, Flashman is the greatest ' BORIS JOHNSON 'Flashman is one of the great characters of modern fiction; a rogue, a lover, and always an irresistible read' BERNARD CORNWELL 'Flashman, Sherlock Holmes, Toad of Toad Hall, Bertie Wooster. Any writer would give his eye-teeth to have created a character as good as those. GMF was one of the greats' CONN IGGULDEN 'The perfect fictional creation' TONY PARSONS 'A first-rate historical novelist' KINGSLEY AMIS
