9780008105594: Captain in Calico

The first unpublished novel from the historical fiction legend, George Macdonald Fraser, featuring the unscrupulous and brilliantly entertaining pirate, Calico Jack Rackham.

New Providence, 1720s. When infamous pirate Captain ‘Calico’ Jack Rackham returns from the high seas to ask Governor Woodes Rogers for a royal pardon, the Governor sees his chance to put his own devious plans into action.

Their agreement sets off an adventure of betrayals, counter-betrayals, plots and escapes that see Rackham join forces with the scheming but seductively beautiful pirate, Anne Bonney.

Captain in Calico is a wonderfully spirited and entertaining novel, which will delight fans of George MacDonald Fraser. The unscrupulous Captain Rackham is pure pleasure, and shows the author’s early penchant - and flair - for writing scoundrels of the highest order.

About the Author:

George MacDonald Fraser OBE was a bestselling historical
novelist, journalist and screenwriter. Having worked on newspapers in Britain and Canada he is perhaps most famous for his series of Flashman novels and his anti-hero Harry Flashman. In addition to his novels he also wrote numerous screenplays, most notably The Three Musketeers and the James Bond film Octopussy. George MacDonald Fraser died in January 2008 at the age of 82.

Review:

Praise for The Flashman Papers:

‘Politically incorrect, lascivious and fiendishly handsome, Flashman is the greatest’ Boris Johnson

‘Flashman is drop-dead funny, unputdownable story-telling, and much better history than anybody gets taught in schools’ Max Hastings

‘Flashman is one of the great characters of modern fiction; a rogue, a lover, and always an irresistible read’ Bernard Cornwell

‘Flashman, Sherlock Holmes, Toad of Toad Hall, Bertie Wooster. Any writer would give his eye-teeth to have created a character as good as those. GMF was one of the greats’ Conn Iggulden

'Flashman is a wonderful creation, by a master storyteller. We'll forever delight in his evil antics' Jeffrey Archer

‘The perfect fictional creation’ Tony Parsons
