I have been pleased to have helped several esteemed gentlemen discover Flashman and Fraser...Here is another one for you: Mr. American - 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.

This is very good, and a must read...As a bonus Flashman makes an appearance in the book, it is 1914 and Flashy is in his 90's, but still Flashy. Highly recommended.
