Description: One thing that constantly disrupts the peace of life at Blandings is the constant incursion of impostors. Blandings has impostors like other houses have mice.
Now there are two of them - both intent on a dangerous enterprise. Lord Emsworth"s secretary, the efficient Baxter, is on the alert and determined to discover what is afoot - despite the distractions caused by the Honorable Freddie Threepwood"s hapless affair of the heart.
1/2 Two imposters are after a valuable scarab at Blandings Castle, unknowingly acquired by dotty Lord Emsworth. Stars Ioan Gruffudd and Helen McCrory.
2/2 Ashe and Joan's battle to secure the precious scarab is becoming intense. Baxter is in hot pursuit, and Lord Emsworth is on alert for midnight marauders. With Ian Ogilvy.

A brilliant Blandings excursion from the pen of one of the greatest writers of humorous fiction.
Classic British humour that could easily have been a skit off Monty Python. Such comic writing is timeless. You'll never stop laughing with the absurdities and comedy of manners/errors spattered generously throughout the entire book. :)
