Flash is in the clutches of Otto Von Bismark – he must you all his charm and skill to escape!

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 beauiful 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.

Review:

“Fraser writes delightfully; his sense of period and dialogue is perfect; his hero is irresistible. Many popular novelists have written fictional heroes inot great historical events. But few if any, have don’t it as well as Fraser.”
Daily Telegraph

From the Back Cover:

THE FLASHMAN PAPERS 1842-1843
VOLUME TWO

In this second 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 while the destiny of a continent rests on his broad and failing shoulders. Courtesans and prize-chambermaids crowd the pages of his memoirs, while old Flashy scuttles nimbly from cover to cover.

‘Fraser is a natural story-teller...Flashy is a wonderful character’
DAILY EXPRESS

‘MacDonald Fraser falls into what these days is an exclusive group: the storyteller who can write’
D J TAYLOR,' Sunday Times '
