I honestly started to flag and lost interest having read the opening chapters of the 'Lord Lucan mystery.' The book is a theoretical account of Lord Lucan's unresolved disappearance following his murder of children's Nanny Sandra Rivet. Unfortunately the book fails to engage the reader or deliver any narrative meat to such a promising plot. The Lucan character reads like a poor relation to Harry Flashman, in George Macdonald Frasers incomparable series of the `Flashman' diaries. So my advice is simple. Save your money on this Lucan poltroon and read the far more amusing `Flashman diaries' instead.
