Publisher's Summary

Someone has stolen - yet again - Uncle Tom's antique silver cow-creamer. Suspicions fall on Wilbert Cream, believed to be a wealthy American practical joker and kleptomaniac known as Broadway Willie. But the incident only marks the beginning of Bertie Wooster's problems. It is only by a stroke of rare - very rare - genius that Bertie Wooster finds a solution. He recalls Jeeves, his incomparable manservant, from his annual holiday at Herne Bay, and Jeeves sorts out everybody and everything in his usual inimitable style.

What the Critics Say

"[Wodehouse is] a master, a genius of inventiveness and versatility, brilliant in his use of language, more adroit than almost any novelist since Dickens at working out a complex package of plot, sub-plot, and sub-sub-plot." (Daily Telegraph)
"A brilliantly funny writer - perhaps the most consistently funny the English language has yet produced." (Times (London))

Same book as "How Right You Are, Jeeves"

Great story - difficult narrator...The narrator of this recording is difficult to listen to. Almost as if the microphone is too close. Better off to download another version. Also, had downloaded "How Right You Are, Jeeves" without knowing it was the same story as "Jeeves in the Offing".

Awful narration

Davidson plays Bertie as arch and knowing, which, as Aunt Agatha will attest, are two of the things Bertie most certainly is not. Plus, every character has the same grating drawl. Yes, they'll all upper class toffs with Oxbridge accents, but they shouldn't all sound exactly the same, male and female, young and old. I had to abandon this reading in midstream and start over with a different narrator. Where is Jonathan Cecil when we need him most?
