Bertie Wooster, recently returned from a very pleasurable soujourn in Cannes, finds himself at the stately home of Sir Henry Hackwood in Dorset. Bertie is more than familiar with the country house set-up: he is a veteran of the cocktail hour and, thanks to Jeeves, his gentleman's personal gentleman, is never less than immaculately dressed. On this occasion, however, it is Jeeves who is to be seen in the drawing room while Bertie finds himself below stairs - and he doesn't care for it at all.

A tale truly worthy of P G Wodehouse himself. Faulks makes an excellent fist of both the style and the characters of the Jeeves and Wooster novels. In fact I think Faulks’ Wooster comes across as a slightly more sympathetic portrayal than my recollection of the Wodehouse Bertie. I really must go and re-read some PGW!
