Publisher's Summary

Due to financial hardships at Tawcester Towers, the Dowager Duchess has decreed that the only way the family fortunes can be restored is to marry Blotto off...to an American! Reluctantly, Blotto, together with Twinks and his trusty chauffeur Corky Froggett set sail. Awaiting him in Illinois is fabulously wealthy heiress Mary Chapstick, the only daughter of meat-packing magnate Hiram P. Chapstick III. But it's Twinks who discovers early on that all is not as it seems and that Hiram P. Chapstick III is in fact up to his neck in a bootlegging operation run by the notorious Chicago mobster, Spagsy Chiaparelli. Will Blotto and Twinks ever make it back to dear old Blighty?

If you like P.G. Wodehouse, you'll like this!

Any additional comments?

It's fluffy, lightweight and silly, like a lovely Eton Mess dessert. Punctuated with a clever turn of phrase and "upper class twits"....just sit back and go for a carousel ride on a old-fashioned hobby horse. Fun!

And I do like Simon Brett!

I imagine this was written for the US market and a teen audience.

Not much story. But lots of action

Silly 'over the top' narration.

Young folk in those tween years caught between "you are old enough to know better" and "do as you are told" and who can still enjoy grown ups being unaware of how illogical they can be are likely to enjoy this one.
