Somehow I don't think the description of The Reavers matches up with the learned biographical study of Madame Suzanne Necker.

?And then the swashbuckler descended into chaos. This is a rousing, rambling, rowdy tale of spies, highwaymen, and luscious ladies. On the border of Scotland and England, a plot led by the mysterious mastermind La Infamosa is underway to kidnap King James and replace him with a Scottish imposter. But there are some forces of, um, good who stand in the way--Archie Noble, whose rugged good looks make him the perfect Elizabethan-era James Bond; Lady Godiva Dacre, who is nothing short of a knockout; her plump, dimwitted maid-in-waiting Kylie; and Gilderoy, the sex appeal-oozing thief/secret agent. There?s the fast-paced swordplay of a classic swashbuckler; there?s also good old-fashioned fistfights. We?ve got witty puns told in Scottish accents and villains twirling their mustachios at veiled ladies. For cloak-and-dagger intrigue and whole lot of inspired silliness, look no further than The Reavers. George MacDonald Fraser is best known for his series about Sir Harry Flashman, a Victorian-era cad who goes out of his way to avoid ever swashing any buckle of any kind. Fraser died early in 2008, so fans of Flashman?s adventures are certain to get a kick out of this delightfully nonsensical swan song.
