Bertie is in an awful pickle when Jeeves, over Bertie's constant playing of the banjolele, leaves his employment and is replaced by a knife weilding socialist who would rather see his blood running down the gutters than bring him his cup of tea. In this absolutely hilarious book from the Master, Bertie find himself in a burning house, chased by a knife weilding valet who thinks he is the devil, hounded by cops in the middle of the night, visited by ex-fiances in his bedroom, having his face painted black to escape from the yatch of an American millionaire, a kindered soul in 'England's biggest alienist' and in jail (again). Whew, what an adventure.
This is also P.G.Wodehouse's first full length novel, and on reading it one chafes that he did not start writing full length Jeeves novels earlier. This book is a very enjoyable read, if you like P.G.Wodehouse, you will definitely take to this one, if you don't, then obviously you have not read the man's works, and this is a great place to start.
