What if Jeeves and Wooster were a pair of giggling ladies of quality, one of whom could become a vampire or werewolf by touch?
The novel follows Prudence, or Rue, and her friend Prim as they travel to India in a giant, ladybug-painted blimp called “The Spotted Custard,” in search of the perfect cup of tea. Along the way the pair have to deal with sinister rakshasas, oppressed were-monkeys and an embarrassingly flatulent airship.
It’s nothing particularly weighty, but it’s lots of fun, filled with humor that would make Wodehouse and Willis proud, and that’s really all it aims to be.
