The ninth novel in Wodehouse's popular Blandings saga
In a major mix-up at Blandings Castle, Galahad introduces yet another imposter to Lord Emsworth's residence and the Empress of Blandings gets sloshed in her sty. Formidable comic characters designed to interrupt Lord Emsworth's peace include his overbearing sister Lady Hermione Wedge who comes complete with her own meddling secretary, and Dame Daphne Winkworth who has her eye on becoming the next Countess. As ever, the stage is set for Gally to try and restore order to the ensuing chaos. Abridged.

Sam Bagshott, son of the late Boko Bagshott, had been at Blandings Castle only a short while, but long enough to know that anyone enjoying its hospitality must get the occasional shock. Sam braced himself as the possibilities flitted through his mind. The house was on fire? Empress of Blandings had taken to the bottle again? Constable Evans had arrived with a search warrant? There was a wide area of speculation, and he was prepared for bad news in any form. In any form, that is to say, except the one in which it came.About the Author:
