Wodehouse Free download Something Fishy O go to whichever of their sons was the last to marry Thirty years later Keggs wants to cash in on what he knows. I am an enormous fan of the great PG Wodehouse and have almost the entire collection of his 90 books so you re going to see a few of these along the wayFirst published in the UK on the 18th of January 1957 and ten days later in the US under the title The Butler Did It Something Fishy begins at a dinner party held by multi millionaire JJ Bunyan and his cronies Each put 50000 dollars in a fund just before the 1929 stock market crash and form a secret tontine The last of their heirs to get married wins the whole pot expected to be one million dollars when considering compound interest etc Years later only two heirs remain Bill Hollister and Roscoe BunyanAugustus Keggs the former butler to Bunyun s father informs Roscoe of the tontine who then plans to bribe his sole competitor for the fortune into getting married before he does whilst spending as little cash as possible But Keggs has his own agenda fattening his own wallet Keggs is now retired and wealthy and supports his impoverished former employer the genial and often confused Lord Uffenham and Uffenham s niece Jane A chance meeting between Bill and Jane turns to romance Keggs plan is undone by Roscoe and Lord Uffenham and Keggs plot to save the day for Bill and Jane It was precisely this that was giving Jane that feeling of bafflement and frustration She was in the position of the Big Four at Scotland Yard when they know perfectly well that it was Professor Moriarty who put the arsenic in the Ruritanian ambassador s soup but have no means of proving it to the satisfaction of a jury On such occasions the Big Four knit their brows and bite their lower lips and Jane knit and bit hers A momentary urge to bang her uncle on the head with the coffee pot came and passed It is at times such as these that breeding tells Something Fishy is a seuel of sorts to Money in the Bank 1942 and once again Lord Uffenham is short of money He s been forced to let out his country pile to Roscoe Bunyan but this time rather than hunting for diamonds he intends to revive the family fortunes by the sale of some forged paintings Once again another relative is engaged to the wrong man and Lord Uffenham must right this wrong while ensuring that his finances will stretch to the weddingBill Hollister joins a long line of Wodehouse heroes who are charming witty and thoroughly deserving of getting the girl Jane too is a cheerful optimistic heroine Another Wodehouse campaigner of old Keggs esteemed butler of A Damsel in Distress and The Coming of Bill now retired from business his last employer being Lord Uffenham has never lost his passion for money making schemes and has hatched such a scheme which he believes will make his retirement all the comfortable A nice touch is that Keggs brother in law is former boxer Battling Billson who was previously managed by Wodehouse roguecharmer Ukridge Unscrupulous detective Percy Pilbeam also reappears as a man unrivalled in the art of stealing compromising letters A new character I loved immediately was art expert Mortimer Bayliss Devious rude but ultimately a good egg he ll make one further appearance in about ten years time when he turns up as everyone seems to eventually at Blandings CastleOne of the things I love in Wodehouse stories are that the levels of chance are set extremely high Even though I should have seen it coming the fact that when Bill and Jane first meet it turns out that they knew each other as children when Bill rescued Jane from the clutches of young bully Roscoe Bunyan still caught me unawares Eually surprising the story took an unexpected turn when a romance plot line I thought was going to dominate was solved in a matter of a few paragraphs and we moved off in a different directionIt s not a long book but rips alongs at a happily frantic for Wodehouse pace As ever the plot is almost impossible to review in depth but I never like giving everything away so that s fine I was especially pleased by the brilliant twists and turns at the end Although I haven t yet read all the Wodehouse collection I haven t discovered many instances where Wodehouse uses a series of false endings It s a bit like watching a James Cameron film where he finishes the story then there s an ending you didn t see coming then when you think it s all done he pulls out another one Although I think sixty years is sufficient time for spoilers not to count I won t give anything away suffice to say that everyone thinks they ve got the better of everyone else but only Keggs and Mortimer Bayliss know the whole story What s Wodehouse plays absolutely fair in that you had all the clues in front of you but you just didn t see itThis is an absolute favourite of mine but as with Arrow s recent re issues it tends to get overlooked in favour of titles such as the in my view overrated Piccadilly Jim or the rather bland Adventures of Sally Still you can still find the odd second hand paperback knocking around or buy the Everyman hardback edition if you can stomach the awful cover illustration Hunt it down you won t be disappointed La esfinge maragata published in the UK on the 18th of January 1957 and ten days later in the US under
