Plot summary

Bertie is persuaded to brave the home of his fearsome Aunt Agatha and her husband Lord Worplesdon, knowing that his former fiancee, the beautiful but brainy Lady Florence Craye will also be in attendance. What ensues will come to be remembered as "the Steeple Bumpleigh Horror", with Bertie under constant threat of engagement to Craye, violence from her oafish suitor Stilton Cheesewright, and unnamed peril from the acid tongue of Aunt Agatha. Only the masterful Jeeves can save the day...
