5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Rates of Interest Assured., 21 Feb. 2008
This review is from: Money In The Bank (Everyman's Library P G WODEHOUSE) (Hardcover)
`Money in the Bank' is one of my favourite Wodehouse novels. Lord Uffenham is short of money and has had to let his country pile to big game hunter, Mrs Cork, however, what money he has is the family jewels which he has hidden for safe keeping. Unfortunately Lord Uffenham's poor memory means he has no idea where he has hidden them, consequently he is posing as Cakebread, the butler, to give him the opportunity to search the rooms.

Also on hand are Soapy & Dolly Molloy and co-conspirator Chimp Twist whom we met previously in `Sam the Sudden' and `Money for Nothing'. Having got wind of diamonds been loose on the premises they are determined to get them away from Lord Uffenham and even each other. Novelist Jeff Miller is on site to try and woo Mrs Cork's secretary Anne Benedick who is secretly engaged to her employer's nephew, Lionel Green.

As you can imagine with a celebrated big game hunter in attendance before the boy gets the girl or the diamonds are recovered or the thieves revealed there is to be some gun play however it is really the dialogue that hits the mark. Wodehouse, as ever, delivers a dead eye shot every time.
