Welcome to Blandings Castle, a place that is never itself without an imposter.Wodehouse himself once noted that Blandings has impostors like other houses have mice. On this particular occasion there are two, both intent on a dangerous enterprise. Lord Emsworths secretary, the Efficient Baxter, is on the alert and determined to discover what is afootdespite the distractions caused by the Honorable Freddie Threepwoods hapless affair of the heart.Freddie is engaged to marry the daughter of a wealthy American who is a passionate collector of ancient Egyptian scarabs. When one goes missing, a thousand-pound reward is offered for its return and Blandings becomes a madhouse as friends turn rivals in the scramble to retrieve the object.

From the Back Cover:

A Blandings novel This is the first Blandings novel, in which P.G. Wodehouse introduces us to the delightfully dotty Lord Emsworth, his bone-headed younger son, the Hon. Freddie Threepwood, his long-suffering secretary, the Efficient Baxter, and Beach the Blandings butler.

As Wodehouse wrote, ‘without at least one impostor on the premises, Blandings Castle is never itself’. In Something Fresh there are two, each with an eye on a valuable scarab which Lord Emsworth has acquired without quite realizing how it came into his pocket. But of course things get a lot more complicated than this...
