These humorous adventures, inspired by the writings of P. G. Wodehouse, tell how Teddy Aston, the nephew of Lord and Lady Alpington, leads a life of luxurious idleness, ably supported by his valet, Budworth, in between-the-wars England. Betting, country house weekends, avoiding marriage and indoor rugby at the infamous Sloths Club are his main activities. But why is his fearsome Aunt Amelia, Lady Alpington, so anxious to find him a rich bride before his thirtieth birthday? And why do the New York Mafia regard him as a person to be treated with respect? Only Budworth knows the answers!

Readers will obviously see the Wodehouse influence on this book, but John Jansen speaks with his own voice. This is a delightful book, full of humour and excitement, and will keep the reader guessing as to whether Teddy Aston will avoid the strings of matrimony. I fully recommend this book and hope that there will be others to follow.
