In P.G. Wodehouse's romantic pig-napping thriller, charming Uncle Fred receives a plea from Lord Emsworth to help foil a plot to steal his prize-winning pig and to investigate the sanity of the eccentric Duke of Dunstable.
Uncle Fred arrives at Blandings Castle in the guise of a brain specialist, with nephew Pongo Twistleton posing as his secretary. Devious Rupert Baxter spots the impersonation but can't call their bluff for fear of blackmail. Will the Duke be pronounced potty? Will the pig-napping happen? Will the sun ever cease to shine?
