Adventures of Thomas Flashman Book 7

"This seventh instalment in the memoirs of the Georgian rogue Thomas Flashman reveals that, despite his suffering through the Napoleonic Wars, he did not get to enjoy a quiet retirement. Indeed, middle age finds him acting just as disgracefully as in his youth, as old friends pull him unwittingly back into the fray.
He re-joins his former comrade in arms, Thomas Cochrane, in what is intended to be a peaceful and profitable sojourn in South America. Instead, he finds himself enjoying drug-fuelled orgies in Rio, trying his hand at silver smuggling and escaping earthquakes in Chile, before being reluctantly shanghaied into the Brazilian navy.
Sailing with Cochrane again, he joins the admiral in what must be one of the most extraordinary periods of his already legendary career. With a crew more interested in fighting each other than the enemy, they use Cochrane's courage, Flashman's cunning and an outrageous bluff to carve out nothing less than an empire which will stand the test of time"

Anyone read any of these?

I have read them all so far. Though not as good as the original 'Flashman' series by George MacDonald Fraser (the hero is not such an out and out cad), they are great entertainment in their own right with a similar feel for historical detail and accuracy. Highly recommended.
