  • [Schott] captures the style of the Master very well indeed. He follows Jeeves And The King of Clubs with a glorious romp . . . a splendidly jolly read.

    Daily Express
  • Once again pastiche perfect.

    Ian Sansom’s book of the year, Times Literary Supplement
  • Captures PG Wodehouse's style very well.

    Daily Mirror
  • A combination of the old and new, done with panache and wit . . . Schott's new novel is a hugely welcome one, and deserves to soar up the Christmas bestseller lists.

    The Critic
  • Ben Schott's second Jeeves and Wooster book proves an enjoyable continuation of PG Wodehouse's classic characters. Schott writes in a distinctive style that is somewhere between homage and postmodern response, and his story . . . is more eventful and action-packed than Wodehouse would ever have countenanced. And it ends on a splendid cliff hanger.

  • This homage to P.G. Wodehouse is so good that a blind reading (i.e. a genuine 'Plum' versus Schott's pastiche) would be a tricky call. Everything is in its place: Jeeves shimmers, aunts scheme, Drones drone. Even the style is spot-on: the erudition of Schott's various Miscellanies finds expression as similes and quotations of hilarious ingenuity . . . the sheer luxury, wealth and self-assurance of Bertie's world is brilliantly evoked with all its enviable light-heartedness intact. A masterpiece in every sense.

    Daily Mail
  • In times of stress, there's nothing like an outing with Bertram Wilberforce Wooster. A very creditable and uplifting homage to the master.
