Narrator James Lance makes a jolly good show of this second novel commissioned by the P.G. Wodehouse estate. The plot has our man Jeeves and his gentleman, Bertie Wooster, engaged by a Lord MacAuslan to undertake a spot of counterespionage against the fascist-loving Roderick Spode, another Wodehouse creation. Joining these four as the audiobook's core characters are Bertie's Auntie Dahlia, former fiancées Florence and Madeline, lovelorn friend Montague Montgomery, and MacAuslan's niece, Iona. 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. K.W.
