This is a P.G. Wodehouse novel. The peaceful slumber of the Worcester village of Rudge-in-the-Vale is about to be rudely disrupted.
First there's a bitter feud between peppery Colonel Wyvern and the Squire of Rudge Hall, rich but miserly Lester Carmody.
Second, that arch-villain Chimp Twist has opened a health farm - and he and Soapy and Dolly Molloy are planning a fake burglary so Lester can diddle his insurance company.
After the knockout drops are served, things get a little complicated.
But will Lester's nephew John win over his true love, Colonel Wyvern's daughter Pat, and restore tranquillity to the idyll?
It's a close-run thing.
