The action moves from America via Ocean liner to English country home using all the Wodehouse signatures except a stolen necklace to bring Billie Bennett and Sam Marlowe back together. Possibly too much stage craft is employed by Wodehouse so we never spend enough time with any of the characters to decide what our true sentiments towards them are. Wodehouse possibly felt the same way and none of these characters appear in the saga running though his great body of work.
Not the most satisfying of Wodehouse's novels but a pretty good read and worth reading just to see how he would use less of the mechanisms employed in this novel to greater effect in later works.
