The misadventures of P.G. Wodehouse's Bertie Wooster and his incomparable valet, Jeeves, have delighted audiences for nearly a century. Now, bestselling author Ben Schott brings this odd couple back to life in a madcap new adventure that is full of the hijinks, entanglements, imbroglios, and Wodehousian wordplay that readers love. And, by Jove, there's a hook!

In this escapade, the Junior Ganymede Club (Jeeves's association of butlers and valets) is revealed to be an arm of the British intelligence service. Jeeves must ferret out a Fascist spy, and only his hapless employer can help. Unfolding in the background are school-chum capers, affairs of the heart, drawing-room escapades, antics with aunts, and sartorial set-tos.


Energized by Schott's effervescent prose, JEEVES AND THE KING OF CLUBS delights longtime fans and introduces a new audience to the comic joys of these beloved characters.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A smart, often hilarious caper that turns the duo into international spies and reminds us why Wodehouse’s characters became beloved in the first place.”

    Town & Country magazine

  • Schott is a wonderful, exacting mimic: Bertie Wooster and his valet, Jeeves, could almost be mistaken for themselves, their exchanges sparkling and unexpected.

    USA Today
  • “The pages of Wodehouse contain an ‘empire of comic writing on which the sun has never set’… in elevating Bertie Wooster as its staunchest defender, he burnishes the gleam.”

    New York Times Book Review
  • “Narrator James Lance makes a jolly good show of this second novel commissioned by the P. G. Wodehouse estate… Lance brings each character lithely to life. It would be dashed unsporting if Wodehouse purists were to quibble with Ben Schott’s story or Lance’s performance, as both are simply topping. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”
