From the Author
I've been waiting years to publish this one. It was a bundle of fun to write. I love stories about the intrepid young hero who sets out to change the world, and I love PG Wodehouse, so the combination was just percolating in my mind, anticipating its opportunity. Thomas and Parsons turned out to be a terrific pair. I had so much fun with Thomas's family, his hobbies and his unconscious snobbery (he is really very good-hearted in spite of his rank). Parsons is so fantastically competent that I wish I had a minion like him myself.
Enjoy the book!
