‘It was fascinating to read about your great grandfather, what an extraordinary life!’
Stephen Fry – yes, the peripatetic virtuoso, Stephen Fry
- observed on reading a preliminary article on Frederick
(August, 2010).

And no wonder …
Madness, murder, suicide and war … drug broking, opium smuggling and colonial Burma in crisis. This is the amazing story of Frederick Puckle’s tumultuous life in nineteenth century England.

Review : I just loved this book. It is so readable and choc-full of information. It is fascinating to learn about the Opium Wars, and the Burma-British relationship is terrific. I am particularly impressed at the ease with which it can be read; with short bites of information well headed and tying it in with the main narrative of Frederick’s life. Thank you so much for the opportunity to read this intriguing story.

Review : I started the book a few days ago and couldn't put it down! It makes such interesting reading and is very informative. Research is excellent and the way she has absorbed it all into her family history is quite unique. Secondly the quality of the book - paper and printing - makes it a real pleasure to read.
