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.
