Monty is the only person who can send the errant Ambrose back to her welcoming arms is causing Mr Bodkin moments of acute distress ‘The Luck of the Bodkins’ tells the continuing story of Monty Bodkin and his engagement to Gertrude Butterwick which relies on his remaining in someone’s employ for a whole year We last met Monty at Blanding’s Castle where he was employed as secretary for Lord Emsworth for the length of ‘Heavy Weather’ rather than the length of a year Monty left Blanding’s after gaining employment with Percy Pilbeam at the Argos Detective Agency Monty is on Holiday at Cannes but follows Gertrude on board the RMS Atlantic after receiving a Cable breaking off their engagementThe RMS Atlantic acts as a typical Wodehouse stately home for the purposes of the farce with state rooms replacing the usual bedroom setting for the misunderstandings and complications that litter farce like so may discarded gloves The RMS Atlantic has the usual domestic staff with steward Albert Peasemarch undertaking most of the ‘business’ usually entrusted to butlers or under footmen Trying to summarise the plot in less than the three hundred pages Wodehouse uses would rather miss the point of this type of book but in essence Monty loves Gertrude who thinks he likes Lotus Blossom a movie starlet whom adores Ambrose who thinks she has fallen for his brother Reggie whom has definitely got it bad for Mabel Spence sister in law to movie mogul Ikey Llewellyn whom has been charged with smuggling jewels for his wife GrayceIf the plot appears complicated you should try the resolution And you really should try the resolution The Liner setting allowed Wodehouse the unusual point that all his cast need not be aware of each over at the start of the voyage and allowed him to dispense with making half of them unwilling imposters Definitely one of the masters most overlooked master pieces and my own personnel favourite
