Publisher's Summary

George Uffenham, the eccentric sixth viscount of Uffenham, has just converted the family fortune into diamonds - and stashed them away in a secret hiding place. But as luck would have it, an unfortunate car accident soon thereafter causes him to forget the jewels' location. In order to recover the gems, he must let out his estate, Shipley Hall, to big-game hunter Clarissa Cork and return posing as the butler, Cakebread. Thus disguised he will have the opportunity to search all the rooms and reclaim his family pile!

In typical Wodehouse fashion, Money in the Bank is a lively narrative full of witty banter, bumbling buffoons, and wild shenanigans.

Brilliant reading of a delightful story

Simon Vance performed perfectly all the characters and nuances of Wodehouse's delightfully different story. Wonderful!

Bank on PGW

Vance may not quite be Douglas, but he did a pretty workmanlike job. As for Wodehouse, there are no superlatives great enough to describe his genius.

A wonderful Wodehouse story.

This is a laugh-out-loud lWoodhouse story. Great performance, some new characters, particularly liked Cake bread and the huntress.
