9780007750559: 'FLASHMAN AND THE MOUNTAIN OF LIGHT. FROM THE FLASHMAN PAPERS, 1845-46'

This ninth volume of The Flashman Papers finds that history’s most unheroic hero, Sir Harry Flashman, is back in India, where his saga began. This time, our hero is sent by Her Majesty's Secret Service to spy on the corrupt court of Lahore, on India's Northwest Frontier. Flashy deals with a ravishing maharini and her equally sex-hungry maid, joins forces with an American adventurer with royal ambitions, and attempts to win the brightest jewel in England’s imperial crown at the cost of something he will never miss—namely, his honor.

About the Author:

In addition to his novels, he wrote numerous screenplays, most notably The Three Musketeers and the James Bond film Octopussy. George MacDonald Fraser died in 2008 at the age of 82.

Review:

Praise for the Flashman series
“Hilariously funny.”—The New York Times Book Review
 
“Great dirty fun!”—Grand Rapids Press
 
“The most entertaining anti-hero in a long time... Moves from one ribald and deliciously corrupt episode to the next... Wonderful and scandalous.”—Publishers Weekly
 
“Raises dastardliness to the level of an art... One of the most amusing and sardonic novels I have ever read!”—Omaha World
 
“As irreverent and picaresque as Tom Jones and always more dramatic... Flashman is a one-man demolition squad!”—Chicago Today
 
“Marvelously entertaining... A delight!”—Providence Journal
