Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Another excellent Flashman novel"

    Penry-Jones has captured the utterly debauched Harry Flashman. It's a superb performance - he captures a wide range of bizarre characters and the irony of the increasingly difficult situations in which Harry Flashman finds himself.

    All of the Flashman novels are excellent, and this is one of the better ones: I love the way that Fraser manages to find humour in the most difficult subjects: In this case the African slave-trade. Often books about this subject become mawkish or lecturing. This book is neither - it does not shy away from the horrors of slavery nor descend into any kind of self-pity.
