Published by AuthorHouseBooks
The Speedicut Papers recount the life, loves and adventures of Jasper Speedicut: charmer, sexual libertine, reluctant hero – and friend of the self-styled Brigadier General Sir Harry Flashman VC. They are also a unique account of events during the second half of the 19th century in the British Empire and beyond. Comprising a series of linked adventures and anecdotes, The Speedicut Papers not only lift the lid on a veritable cesspit of upper class debauchery that makes Downton Abbey look like a vicarage tea party, but expose the fact that Flashman was nothing more than a remittance man and a plagiarising fraud.

The first book in a ten volume series, Flashman’s Secret, uncovers some very murky corners of 19th century history including the early careers of Sweeney Todd and the notorious courtesan, Lola Montez; the reason why Nelson’s last words were changed after his death; and the existence of a sinister secret society at the heart of the British establishment dedicated, by whatever means including murder, to upholding the honour of the British crown.

In nine subsequent volumes yet to be published, The Speedicut Papers will reveal the truth about many other previously unexplained historical incidents including well evidenced explanations for the relentless pursuit through the criminal courts of Oscar Wilde, the actual reasons behind the deaths of Emperor Maximilian I of Mexico, President Lincoln, the Prince Imperial, King Ludwig II of Bavaria and The Duke of Clarence & Avondale.
