First he must face the peril of Sir Watkin's droopy daughter, Madeleine, and then the terrors of would-be Dictator, Roderick Spode and his gang of Black Shorts. But when duty calls, Bertram answers, and so there follows what he himself calls the 'sinister affair of Gussie Fink-Nottle, Madeleine Bassett, old Pop Bassett, Stiffy Byng, the Rev. H. P. ('Stinker') Pinker, the eighteenth-century cow-creamer and the small, brown, leather-covered notebook'. In a plot with more twists than an English country lane, it takes all the ingenuity of Jeeves to extract his master from the soup again.Hide synopsis

"It is Wodehouse, what more need one say.
How many books make you laugh out loud today.
Wodehouse's books contain some of the broadest, most imaginative and most enjoyable imagery and his original use of simile is unique.
If you have never read Wodehouse you are missing a treat. You will have to search hard to find his equal anywhere else in the whole of English literature."
This is a classic humorous novel in the finest traditon of Bertie Wooster-Jeeves. It is truly one of PG Wodehouse's best - and that is saying a lot. The plot is just convoluted enough, the characters a joy to get re-acquainted with and the language of course is peerless.
