Overview

A game of cards leads Flashman from the jungle death-house of Dahomey to the slave state of Mississippi as he dabbles in the slave trade in Volume III of the "Flashman Papers". When Flashman was inveigled into a game of pontoon with Disraeli and Lord George Bentinck, he was making an unconscious choice about his own future - would it lie in the House of Commons or the West African slave trade? Was there, for that matter, very much difference? Once again Flashman's charm, cowardice, treachery, lechery and fleetness of foot see the lovable rogue triumph by the skin of his chattering teeth.

Flashman again flies in the face of adversity, if he is not dodging his black ship Captain John Charity Spring, he is dodging Amazons or the US Navy. Historical accuracy and fine footnotes again bring added value to the Flashman collection. A book to be read by all people for many reasons, totally enjoyable, the way history should be taught.
