When Flashman was inveigled into a game of pontoon with Disraeli and Lord George Bentinck, he was making an unconscious choice about his own future would it lie in the House of Commons or in the West African slave trade? Was there, for that matter, very much difference? One thing was certain: Flashman would bring to his third great adventure all the qualities which had earned him fame and honour in the First Afghan War and brought him through his deadly power struggle with Bismark: Qualities like charm, cowardice, quickness of thought, treachery, lechery, and above all, fleetness of foot.

Forced onto a transatlantic ship by his father-in-law, he finds himself smuggling slaves across the Atlantic, and then, after being captured by the Yankee navy, changes his tune and declares himself an abolitionist! Much against his worse inclinations, he becomes an agent of the underground railroad.
