Early Wodehouse work follows Ashe Marson into the drafty halls of Blandings Castle, where he will try to make 'something new' of his life by purloining a rare Egyptian scarab—all for the best motives, of course. The resultant hilarious romp through a stately English country home in search of the missing piece also introduces other characters who recur throughout the author's Blandings Castle Saga.
