The Man Who Would Be King
"The first American in Afghanistan"
is not the phrase that comes to my mind when I think of
--one of the finest specimens of the rogue, rascal and freebooter there ever was--but then I'm always behind the times. George Macdonald Fraser had
a wicked sketch of Harlan in Flashman and the Mountain of Light
, where the good doctor did a cameo as a man who played both sides false, in style.
