Publisher's Summary

Following the popularity of the memoirs of Harry Flashman, the Victorian scoundrel who got himself embroiled in many events of his age, this book introduces a new generation of the family: Thomas Flashman, whose career covers the Napoleonic and Georgian era. This first book covers his adventures with Thomas Cochrane, one of the most extraordinary naval commanders of all time. From the brothels and gambling dens of London, through political intrigues and espionage, the action moves to the Mediterranean and the real life character of Thomas Cochrane. This book covers the start of Cochrane's career including the most astounding single ship action of the Napoleonic war. Thomas Flashman provides a unique insight as danger stalks him like a persistent bailiff through a series of adventures that prove history really is stranger than fiction.

    Story
    "Brilliant addition to the Flashman universe"

    A cracking novel that follows in the style of the more famous Harry Flashman stories.

    After the initial scene setting this book really gathers pace when the action moves abroad. I've read all 6 of the books in this series & was really pleased to find that they are starting to be turned into audio versions. The mixture of historical accuracy & fiction always makes for an interesting & pleasurable story & clearly demonstrates that Robert Brightwell knows this time period and can write a good tale based on it. Thoroughly recommended.

    Story
    "Not the same as original Flashy but entertaining"
    What made the experience of listening to Flashman and the Seawolf the most enjoyable?

    Came across some historical characters I had not heard of before


    What did you like best about this story?

    It carefully wove the fiction and historical events together. I checked on most and the book was clearly well researched. Not as comedic as GMFs Flashman but an interesting start setting the scene for a good series hope the other books are put on audible


    Have you listened to any of Henry Clore Harrison’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    not listened to others


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    listened on the commute to work but could have done this in 1 or 2 sittings


    Any additional comments?

    Hope the rest of the series is made available soon

    Any additional comments?

    This has the great interest of good historical fiction without the extreme loutishness characteristic of George MacDonald Fraser's earlier "Flashman" novels. I can't wait for the next one to be voiced.
