4.0 out of 5 stars Wodehouse Tale Peters Out., 4 July 2008
This review is from: Do Butlers Burgle Banks? (EVERYMAN WODEHOUSE) (Hardcover)
Horace Appleby is the head of the `Appleby gang' whom eek out a living by Horace gaining employment as the butler in England's foremost country houses to be the inside man and point out all of the best jewels and tapestry's and such like for the remainder of the gang. His latest post at Mallow Hall is the country seat of Michael Bond whom is also the chairman of Bond's Bank as Horace intends to diversify into bank robbery.

Further complications arise in that Horace has proposed to Bank secretary Ada and Michael is courting his Aunt's nurse Jill. Oh and also the Bank is on the verge of bankruptcy and doesn't actually have any money, an attempted robbery would be the only way to clear the debt.

Wodehouse is clearly past his best here but un-like Horace he nearly pulls it off.

Good review, but can't agree Wodehouse was past his best!
