This seventh instalment in the memoirs of the Georgian rogue Thomas Flashman reveals that, despite his suffering through the Napoleonic Wars, he did not get to enjoy a quiet retirement.
Indeed, middle age finds him acting just as disgracefully as in his youth, as old friends pull him unwittingly back into the fray. He re-joins his former comrade in arms, Thomas Cochrane, in what is intended to be a peaceful and profitable sojourn in South America. Instead, he finds himself enjoying drug-fuelled orgies in Rio, trying his hand at silver smuggling and escaping earthquakes in Chile, before being reluctantly shanghaied into the Brazilian navy. Sailing with Cochrane again, he joins the admiral in what must be one of the most extraordinary periods of his already legendary career.
With a crew more interested in fighting each other than the enemy, they use Cochrane’s courage, Flashman’s cunning, and an outrageous bluff to carve out nothing less than an empire which will stand the test of time.

I love every take in this series
The narration is fantastic and Brightwell tells another fantastic story that effortlessly blends Flashman's adventures with a little known and fascinating historical period. Can't wait for the next one. :(

Another great adventure
These books just keep getting better. I love how the author puts flashman in the thick of relatively obscure history. Great performance. The worst part is the waiting between book releases!
