Money in the Bank

Money in the Bank
by P.G. Wodehouse

George Uffenham, the eccentric sixth Viscount of Uffenham, has sold most of his family fortune to buy jewelry he then hides in a secret place. Victim of a car accident, he loses his memory and can no longer remember where he hid the jewels. This forces him to leave the family pile and to return there, posing as a butler, to search for the lost gems.

My Reaction:
(A shared read with Donald, as is always the case with Wodehouse.)

This is one of Wodehouse's stand-alone novels, but even if the character names aren't familiar, the character "types" and plot formula are.  This in no way diminishes the fun.  Lord Uffenham is a particularly bright spot in the novel.

Not much more to say-- enjoyable as ever.
