No one knew who Mark Franklin was when he disembarked at Liverpool in 1909 with a copy of Shakespeare's works, an old Mexican charro saddle, and two Remingtons in his battered luggage. He was just another American, tall and softly-spoken. Even General Flashman never guessed the whole truth.
 
“A self-confident performance by an old hand. Mr. Fraser clearly enjoys being master of such a wide and wild plot, and makes sure to leave room in it for his most famous creation, the eponymous hero of his Flashman adventure series.”—The New Yorker
 
“A splendidly entertaining English novel of the old school.”—Time
 
“Every page is sheer unadulterated pleasure.”—The Times (London)
