Tom Molineaux may be crude and untutored, but Mad Buck who, like his son Harry Flashman, has an unerring eye for the main chance, sees this ex-slave from America as a champion in the making. Under his patronage, the Black Ajax is shaped into the wonder of the Fancy and the toast of the town, hailed by the Prince of Wales, dressed by Beau Brummell, and pursued by the ladies. As a natural celebrity, simple Tom Molineaux is carries on a popular tide towards his great dream: to fight the invincible, undefeated Champion of England, the great Tom Cribb.
