Publisher's Summary

Harry Flashman: the unrepentant bully of Tom Brown's schooldays, now with a Victoria Cross, has three main talents - horsemanship, facility with foreign languages, and fornication. A reluctant military hero, Flashman plays a key part in most of the defining military campaigns of the 19th century despite trying his utmost to escape them all.

When our hero Flashman accepts an invitation from his old enemy, Tom Brown of Rugby, to join in a friendly cricket match, he does not suspect that he is letting himself in for the most desperate game of his scandalous career.

What follows is a deadly struggle that sees him scampering from the hallowed wicket of Lord's to the jungle lairs of Borneo pirates, from a Newgate hanging to the torture pits of Madagascar, and from Chinatown's vice dens to slavery in the palace of the female Caligula herself, Queen Ranavalona of Madagascar.

Had he known what lay ahead, Flashman would never have taken up cricket seriously.

What the Critics Say

"The Flashman Papers do what all great sagas do - winning new admirers along the way but never, ever betraying old ones. It is an immense achievement." (Sunday Telegraph)
"Not so much a march as a full-blooded charge, fortified by the usual lashings of salty sex, meticulously choreographed battle scenes and hilariously spineless acts of self preservation by Flashman." (Sunday Times)
"Not only are the Flashman books extremely funny, but they give meticulous care to authenticity. You can, between the guffaws, learn from them." (Washington Post)
"A first-rate historical novelist." (Kingsley Amis)

    "a really good adventure!"

    This is up to the usual high standard of the Flashman tales. Great fun, and as usual the coward and cad performs heroically!

    "Brilliant writing, poor narration"
    What did you like most about Flashman's Lady?

    Great evocation of early cricket matches and, as ever, GMF knows how to pace a book. It's a great shame the actor reading it isn't any where near good enough. Wrong voice and some awful reading gaffes [ doesn't anyone monitor the recordings ]
    Get Timothy West to read them.I heard the best Flashman [ for me ] F in the Great Game
    read by him and the voice is spot on.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Differant reader.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No.

    "Such fun"

    I have very quickly come to love the Flashman series of books and this one has not disappointed. This novel evokes a time when travelling in Asia really was exploration. McDonald has written a gripping adventure story but for me the real joy is just how funny it is.

    "Disappointing"
    What would have made Flashman's Lady better?

    Unfortunately the narrator would have been better reading Wind in the Willows,
    Wrong voice, wrong pauses,


    Has Flashman's Lady put you off other books in this genre?

    No I will check who the reader is.....


    What didn’t you like about Colin Mace’s performance?

    Sorry but no, wrong voice


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Flashman's Lady?

    too much telling,
