March 2018 reread: No change in my opinion.

I think that if this audiobook had been narrated by Jonathan Cecil I might have given it 4*. While Simon Vance did a perfectly good narration, his voice didn't convey the zaniness of Wodehouse's plot.

As for the book itself, while not the pinnacle of Wodehouse, this late novel in his œuvre (1964) recalled some of his earlier books (which is a good thing). ( )

Wodehouse è una granita al tamarindo, un chinotto con il limone. Rinfresca, fa sorridere. Certo, racconta fiabe, ma le racconta bene. La traduzione però, un peccato, sciatta, come al solito. ( )

Biff Christopher will inherit his godfather's millions on his 30th birthday, provided he manage to refrain from getting arrested before that date. A simple condition to meet, you would think. But you would be wrong.

The godfather's brother is none too pleased at being disinherited and he'd quite like to get his own hands on the cash. Let's face is, even newspaper tycoons with a peerages can make good use of a few extra bob. And if contesting the will won't do it then his lordship just might have to resort to underhand tactics involving copious quantities of alcohol and an unsuspecting constable.

Will Biff's sister and her faithful swain succeed in keeping him out of the clink? Will the villain succeed in gaining the cash - or will the distractions of a glamorous secretary and the theft of his trousers foil his dastardly plans?

An exceedingly well executed and entertaining story, with plenty of high-jinks before everything gets wrapped up neatly at the end. ( )

First words
The Sergeant of Police who sat at his desk in the dingy little Paris police station was calm, stolid and ponderous, giving the impression of being constructed of some form of suet.
