A splendid story and David Case's reading captures the sardonic nature of Harry Flashman's character perfectly.
The story arc covered by Flash for Freedom and Flashman and the Redskins is a great read. If you like historical fiction, this would be an excellent addition to your library.
In general, I listen rather than read because I have a long commute. The books-on-iPod make the journey so much more enjoyable.
When you find that Nero has lost over 100 lbs to go undercover! It was astonishing that Nero was even able to go outside.
Michael Prichard has a flat, dead-pan delivery that sounds (to me) like a private eye's recitation of the facts. He's not surprised because he's seen it all. I think Michael is a good fit with the Nero Wolfe series.
