Description

What is Flashy doing?

-in the drawing room of a great English mansion with the redhot-blooded mistress of a violently jealous blue-blood?
-in between a pair of Chinese beauties who are willing to do anything and everything to close the gap between East and West?
-in the hold of a warship under fire, with a Malay maiden as explosive as the shells bursting above?
-in the forced service of an African queen who lets a lover stay alive only as long as his power to please holds up?
 
This unblushing cad, this lustful libertine, this infamous and irresistible antihero is clearing doing better than ever—in a round-the-world adventure that would make Queen Victoria pale with shock and swingers of today green with envy.
