REAL HISTORY IN A RIPPING YARNWhen other men might be looking forward to a well-earned retirement to enjoy their ill-gotten gains, Thomas Flashman finds himself once more facing overwhelming odds and ruthless enemies, while standing (reluctantly) shoulder to shoulder with some of America’s greatest heroes.
A trip abroad to avoid a scandal at home leaves him bored and restless. They say ‘the devil makes work for idle hands’ and Lucifer surpassed himself this time as Thomas is persuaded to visit the newly independent country of Texas. Little does he realise that this fledgling state is about to face its biggest challenge – one that will threaten its very existence.
Flashman joins the desperate fight of a new nation against a pitiless tyrant, who gives no quarter to those who stand against him. Drunkards, hunters, farmers, lawyers, adventurers and one English coward all come together to fight and win their liberty.
