Publisher's Summary

The house party at Chateau Blissac, Brittany, features a rather odd array of guests this year.

Mr. J. Wellington Gedge is hoping for some peace and quiet while his wife takes herself off for a while. She, however, has invited numerous visitors to the chateau, to whom he will have to play reluctant host. Senator Opal and his daughter are expected, and so is the chateau's handsome owner, Vicomte de Blissac.

When a certain letter goes missing, landing the senator in the proverbial hot water, it's up to Packy Franklyn, a great pal of the vicomte's, to sort out the mess. Unfortunately this involves a little light safecracking.

New characters. Old hijinks

This Wodehouse tale has only one British aristocrat but there's a host of rich as well as some nefarious Americans whose lives intersect in a crazy tale. There are surprises right up to the last chapter. A fun listen.

Splendid fun

A delightful love story combined with a madcap farce...no, really, it is perfect fun. And again Mr Cecil proves he is the best there is when it comes to voice acting and narrating Wodehouse. Whether as a nefarious safecracker from Chicago, a phony lady’s maid, a French duke, an American senator or even as the senator’s daughter, he makes it all quite believable—or as believable as farce can be. A satisfying resolution, too. What more could one want?
