Royal Flash - The Flashman Papers Book 2 (Paperback)George MacDonald Fraser (author)
- 10+ in stock
A ribald, marvellously subversive take on The Prisoner of Zenda, the second Flashman novel finds everyone’s favourite cad and bounder caught up in dangerous games of disguise and subterfuge during the tinderbox of the 1848 European revolutions. Ruthlessly skewering the conventions of heroic historic fiction, Royal Flash is a wickedly enjoyable indulgence.
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.
A mission calls for a master of disguise, deceit and treachery: there's only one man for the job. When a legendary femme fatale delivers him into the clutches of the dastardly Otto von Bismarck, Flashman will need all the cunning and seductive charm he can muster to escape this plot.
