In the lead story of this volume, a crime wave ensues when Rupert (the Efficient) Baxter returns to Blandings to take the position of tutor to Lord Emsworth's grandson, George...the misadventure at one point involving Lord Emsworth's possession of 12-year-old George's air rifle, a situation fraught with possibility, particularly with the Efficient Baxter in the available vicinity. Other stories feature the indomitable Ukridge, Mr. Mulliner of the Anglers' Rest, and (illuminating life lessons by way of Golf stories, as usual) the Oldest Member. We show the first publication of each story, in the UK unless otherwise indicated.
