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.

In this magnificent new homage to P. G. Wodehouse, Ben Schott leads Jeeves and Wooster on an uproarious adventure of espionage through the secret corridors of Whitehall, the sunlit lawns of Brinkley Court, and the private clubs of St James's.

We encounter an unforgettable cast of characters - old and new - including outraged chefs and exasperated aunts, disreputable politicians and gambling bankers, slushy debs and Cockney cabbies, sphinx-like tailors, and sylph-like spies.

There is treachery to be foiled, naturally, but also horses to be backed, auctions to be fixed, engagements to be escaped, madmen to be blackballed, and a new variety of condiment to be cooked up.

Jeeves & the King of Clubs is essential reading for aficionados of The Master, and a perfect introduction to the joys of Jeeves and Wooster for those who have never before dipped their toe.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'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.' - Observer

'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

'A glorious procession of high jinks.' - Louis Wise, Sunday Times

'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

'Impossible to read without grinning idiotically. Tinkety-tonk!' - Mark Sanderson, Evening Standard

“More Wodehouse than Wodehouse - and that’s why I loved it!”

A great light read that brings Jeeves and Wooster alive.

Key characters from the series are trotted out but you do not feel as if they are new. The whole story flows perfectly and the characters serve to highlight... More
