Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Long awaited and well worth the eleven year wait! this book is a treat indeed. Flashman is the bounder and cad from Tom Brown’s School Days and has been getting out of scrapes over eleven books, always the coward and always coming out of tricky and dangerous situations as the hero. They are all beautifully written with a rattling good pace and bags of adventure. This one is set in the Abyssinian War of 1868 - I had forgotten how good Fraser is.

Comparison: Boris Akunin, Tom Sharpe, Leslie Thomas.
Similar this month: None but try Harry Thompson.

Synopsis

Flashman on the March by George Macdonald Fraser

Britons held captive by mad barbarian monarch!

Fortunately help was at hand: Sir Harry Flashman, arch-cad, poltroon, amorist, and reluctant hero, fleeing first from Mexican bandits, rebels, and the French Foreign Legion, not to mention the relatives of an infatuated Austrian beauty, was in urgent need of somewhere to take cover – even if it meant a perilous secret mission in disguise to the court of a voluptuous African queen with a weakness for stalwart adventurers. Along the way were nightmarish castles, brigand lairs, battles, massacres, orgies, and the loveliest and most lethal women in Africa, testing to the limit the great bounder’s talents for knavery, amorous intrigue, and survival.

Reviews

’Thanks to Fraser’s passion for history, his rare gift for rattling narrative and his infectious delight in robust, rollicking language, we can rejoice in a work of genius worthy of being ranked with – there can be no higher accolade – P.G. Wodehouse’
Daily Telegraph

’Farcically outrageous and disgracefully entertaining’
Sunday Times
