The Empress of Blandings, prize-winning pig and all-consuming
passion of Clarence, Ninth Earl of Emsworth, has disappeared.
Blandings Castle is in uproar and there are suspects a-plenty -
from Galahad Threepwood (who is writing memoirs so scandalous they
will rock the aristocracy to its foundations) to the Efficient
Baxter, chilling former secretary to Lord Emsworth. Even Beach the
Butler seems deeply embroiled. And what of Sir Gregory
Parsloe-Parsloe, Clarence's arch-rival, and his passion for
prize-winning pigs? This comic masterpiece is vintage Blandings,
and P.G. Wodehouse at his best.
