The idyll of Blandings Castle is about to be disturbed, for the Honorable Freddie Threepwood is poised to make his debut as a jewel thief. Freddie, however, is not alone: Blandings is simply brimming with criminals and impostors all intent on stealing Aunt Constance’s twenty-thousand-pound diamond necklace. It is left to the debonair Psmith, with his usual aplomb, to unscramble the passion, problems, and identities, of one and all.

Quotes & Awards

  • “[P. G. Wodehouse] is known for numerous popular stories and novels about his whimsical upper-class characters: the Honorable Bertie Wooster, Psmith, Mr. Mulliner; Jeeves, the valet, and assorted peers. Much of the humor stems from the idle gentleman. The books contain fantasy, affectionate satire, and the absurd comic situations of farce. The style is very elaborate, full of verbal ingenuity, mock pomposity, and unexpected slang.”

    The Reader’s Encyclopedia

  • “Wodehouse is the funniest writer—that is, the most resourceful and unflagging deliverer of fun—that the human race, a glum crowd, has yet produced.”

    The New Yorker, praise for the author

  • “He who has not met Wodehouse has not lived a full life.” 

    San Francisco Chronicle

    " A silly but fun little romp "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Kelly | 2/8/2014

    " Did not realize this was fourth in a series -- doesn't seem to matter much though. I suppose one of the first three books gives more background on the fish. This is pretty classic Wodehouse - funny, well-crafted fluff. Not as tear-inducingly hilarious as the Jeeves and Wooster stories (because they were earlier in his career? Or because I'm 15 years older now?) but still amusing. "

    " Though not as lovable as Jeeves and Wooster, Psmith is a worthy hero in his own right and should appeal to fans of the former. In this book, Psmith is hit with Cupid's arrow and must find a way to win his love while also taking part in a jewel heist--al for a worthy cause, of course. "

    " I like PG Wodehouse's series much better than his standalones. The character of Psmith had me laughing so much, and the plot was simply wonderful. This is one of those books you pick up and know straight away that whatever happens in the following pages, it's going to be delightful. "
