Summary

Part of Wodehouse Blandings series. When a valuable scarab belonging to an American millionaire is absent-mindedly stolen by Lord Emsworth, young writers Ashe Marson and Joan Valentine are tasked with infiltrating Blandings Castle to retrieve it. Meanwhile, vacuous Freddie Threepwood worries that some compromising letters may scupper his engagement to the millionaire's daughter. Wodehouse’s comic masterpiece combines above and below stairs pretensions with all the fun of a romantic thriller.

Great fun and very entertaining.

Loved it: Martin Jarvis is the perfect reader of Wodehouse. He brings all of the characters to life with skill.

thoroughly enjoyable. I love PGWodehouse

I was worried that having someone read it would spoil my picture but I needn't have worried.
