The Code of the Woosters Hardback
Part of the Everyman's Library P G Wodehouse series
Nothing but trouble can ensue when Bertie Wooster's Aunt Dahlia instructs him to steal a silver jug from Totleigh Towers, home of magistrate and hell-hound, Sir Watkin Bassett.
First he must face the peril of Sir Watkin's droopy daughter, Madeleine, and then the terrors of would-be Dictator, Roderick Spode and his gang of Black Shorts.
But when duty calls, Bertram answers, and so there follows what he himself calls the 'sinister affair of Gussie Fink-Nottle, Madeleine Bassett, old Pop Bassett, Stiffy Byng, the Rev.
H. P. ('Stinker') Pinker, the eighteenth-century cow-creamer and the small, brown, leather-covered notebook'.
In a plot with more twists than an English country lane, it takes all the ingenuity of Jeeves to extract his master from the soup again.

Review by dtn620
This is a delightful romp of a book. I am pretty sure the best word to describe this book is fun. The plot constantly twists and turns always to the disadvantage of Bertrand who relies on his man Jeeves to help turn the tables. Wodehouse wrote something like 96 books which leaves me with only 94 more to read. I can't wait for the next Jeeves adventure.
