'Peerless in its wit, elegance and silliness.' Evening Standard BOOKS OF THE YEAR Storm clouds loom over Europe. Treason is afoot in the highest social circles. The very security of the nation is in peril. Jeeves, it transpires, has long been an agent of British Intelligence, but now His Majesty's Government must turn to the one man who can help . . . Bertie Wooster. 'A most thrilling return of Wodehouse's Jeeves and Wooster . . . it vibrates with the spirit and the rhythms of his heart.' 'Remarkably good . . . in its similes, pace and general zing, this yarn is eerily Wodehousian.'

"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 *
