Publisher's Summary

The quintessential comedy master returns with another tale that will have you laughing out loud and yearning for more.

For Edmund Biffen Christopher, life is about to be very good - assuming he can stay out of trouble. If he can avoid being arrested until his 30th birthday, he will inherit his godfather's millions. The trouble is Biff has a certain proclivity for getting into fisticuffs...particularly with policemen. And he's already nearing 30.

Adding to his troubles is Lord Tilbury, who wants the fortune for himself. If Tilbury can make Biff fall foul of the law, his wish will come true. True to form Wodehouse will see to it that everyone gets what's coming to them one way or another.

Very good Wodehouse tale, excellent narration

Biff stands to inherits millions, provided he can make it to his 30th birthday without getting arrested (something he's had happen frequently up to this point). Lord Tilbury believes the money should be his, so he tries to arrange tussles with the police for poor Biff. A fun, enjoyable tale, and Simon Vance is a master narrator.

Worst Wodehouse Ever

Hard to believe that this was written by the master, Wodehouse. It's predictable, the characters are one dimensional and the narrator is nowhere as good as Jonathan Cecil was. I got so fed up with it I put it aside for a month, then finished it on a higher speed playback. I wish I could give it Zero stars!
