When Bertie Wooster goes to stay with his Aunt Dahlia at Brinkley Court and unexpectedly becomes engaged to the imperious Lady Florence Craye, disaster threatens from all sides. While Florence tries to cultivate Bertie's mind, her former fiance, hefty ex-policeman "Stilton" Cheesewright, threatens to beat his body to a pulp, and her new admirer, the bleating poet Percy Gorringe, tries to borrow a thousand pounds. To cap it all, there's a jewelry heist; plus, Bertie has incurred the disapproval of Jeeves by growing a mustache. All in all, it's a classic Wodehouse farce.

"To all Wodehouse fans, it's a well-known fact that Bertie Wooster couldn't survive without the support of his butler, Jeeves, who seems to have been born with the gift of anticipating every need, whim, disaster, crisis, catastrophe, faux pas, scandal, scheme, and sinister plot that is or might be occurring. Jeeves is simply stunning in his perfection. Jonathan Cecil amazes as he reads this larky narrative, capturing perfectly the befuddled Wooster, the conniving Stilton Cheesewright, and the divine Florence--with flawless aplomb. However, while Cecil reads with gusto and flair, he often swallows his words so that the rippling arpeggios of conversation disappear down his gullet. M.D.H. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine"
