About the Book

P. G. Wodehouse wrote a short story titled "Death at the Excelsior". A group of visitors had gathered at the Excelsior Hotel for a weekend stay, where the narrative is set. Mr. Peter, one of the visitors, is found dead in his room, reportedly from a heart attack. The hotel manager, though, is skeptical and starts to look into it. As the manager questions the other visitors, he learns that Willard had a significant amount of money with him that has vanished. He starts to believe that Willard was killed, and with the aid of another visitor, he embarks on an investigation to find the killer. The manager and his ally find a succession of evidence as the inquiry goes on that lead them to suspect numerous of the other visitors. In the end, the real offender is identified, and justice is done. The story is typical of Wodehouse's smart and amusing style, with intriguing characters and a clever plot. The narrative is lively and pleasant despite its rather gruesome subject matter, and it showcases Wodehouse's skills as a master of the short story form.

About Author

P.G. Wodehouse

One of the most popular humorists of the 20th century was P. G. Wodehouse, an English author who lived from 15 October 1881 to 14 February 1975. He created characters like the dim-witted Bertie Wooster and his sage valet, Jeeves, the spotless and talkative Psmith, Lord Emsworth and the Blandings Castle set, the Oldest Member, who told golf stories, and Mr. Mulliner, who told tall tales about everything from bibulous bishops to egotistical movie moguls. Wodehouse, who was the third child of a British magistrate stationed in Hong Kong and was born in Guildford, enjoyed his teenage years at Dulwich College, where he remained committed his entire life. He worked at a bank after finishing school, but he didn't enjoy it and started writing in his spare time. Most of his early works were stories about schools; nevertheless, he eventually turned to comedic fiction. Although Wodehouse spent a large portion of his life in the US and utilized New York and Hollywood as locations for some of his novels and short tales, the majority of his literature is set in his native United Kingdom. His foolish admissions of studio inefficiency and excess in a 1931 interview sparked a scandal.
