Summary:

Someone has stolen - yet again - Uncle Tom's antique silver cow-creamer. Suspicions fall on Wilbert Cream, believed to be a wealthy American practical joker and kleptomaniac known as Broadway Willie. But the incident only marks the beginning of Bertie Wooster's problems.

It is only by a stroke of rare - very rare - genius that Bertie Wooster finds a solution. He recalls Jeeves, his incomparable manservant, from his annual holiday at Herne Bay, and Jeeves sorts out everybody and everything in his usual inimitable style.

"[Wodehouse is] a master, a genius of inventiveness and versatility, brilliant in his use of language, more adroit than almost any novelist since Dickens at working out a complex package of plot, sub-plot, and sub-sub-plot."-Daily Telegraph

    Wodehouse is, of course, wonderful but this isn't a good reading. The pace is too slow and heavy. This is a Blackstone Audio recording. The Recorded Book versions of Wodehouse are much better.
