"Peerless in its wit, elegance and silliness. It is the most successful homage to PG Wodehouse's Wooster and Jeeves stories to date. The footnotes are a joy of misplaced erudition. More of the same, please." -- Robert Fox * Evening Standard, BOOKS OF THE YEAR * "Schott rises to the occasion with a rebooting of one of literature's great double acts that captures His Master's voice and, above all, the famous Wodehouse rhythm... A brilliant conceit: a network of spies in livery, silently watching the movers and shakers." * The Times * "His sensitivity to the tics and cadences of his characters' speech and ways of being is uncannily acute, and full of the same freshness and resonance of perception as Wodehouse's own style. . . it vibrates with the spirit and rhythms of [Wodehouse's] heart" -- Matthew Adams * Sunday Times * "An amusing and well-written homage to the master . . . Schott excels with a series of similes and metaphors every bit as striking as those Wodehouse came up with. A delight to read." * Observer * "A most thrilling return of Wodehouse's Jeeves and Wooster." * Sunday Times * "Impossible to read without grinning idiotically. Tinkety-tonk!" -- Mark Sanderson * Evening Standard * "A glorious procession of high jinks" -- Louis Wise * Sunday Times * "Highly recommended" * Daily Express * "Remarkably good... in its similes, pace and general zing, this yarn is eerily Wodehousian. Blisteringly well done." -- Quentin Letts * Daily Mail * "A true delight." * Vanity Fair * "A fizzy new homage... Schott burnishes the gleam." * New York Times * "Glorious . . . undeniably an impressive, hugely enjoyable feat of ventriloquism." -- Christmas Books * Country Life Magazine * "It is hard not to warm to this hugely entertaining homage." * Mail on Sunday * "This joyous and thoughtful tribute leaves you wanting more." -- Sophie Ratcliffe * TLS * "By Jove! It's a ripping old yarn... Dashed agreeably close to the master." * Daily Mail *
