Description - Leave it to Psmith by P. G. Wodehouse
A Blandings novel Lady Constance Keeble, sister of Lord Emsworth of Blandings Castle, has both an imperious manner and a valuable diamond necklace. This becomes the cause of dark plottings, for within the castle lurk some well-connected jewel thieves among them the Honourable Freddie Threepwood, Lord Emsworth s younger son, who wants the reward money to set up a bookmaking business, and Psmith, the elegant socialist, who s after it for his newly married chum Mike. On patrol with the impossible task of bringing management to Blandings is the Efficient Baxter, whose strivings for order lead to a memorable encounter with the castle flowerpots. Blandings and Psmith together the best combination of Wodehouse joy!
