- Do Butlers Burgle Banks?
Do Butlers Burgle Banks? is a novel by P. G. Wodehouse, first published in the United States on August 5, 1968 by Simon & Schuster, Inc., New York, and in the United Kingdom on September 19, 1968 by Herbert Jenkins, London.
Bond's Bank, which Mike Bond has inherited from his over-enthusiastically philanthropist uncle Horace, is insolvent. With the examiners due shortly and no solution in sight, Mike faces the prospect of a stretch in the clink for not revealing this earlier. If the criminal mastermind Appleby had known this, he probably wouldn't have insinuated his way into the temporary butler vacancy. But then he probably wouldn't have fallen in love with Ada. And Chicago mobster Charlie Yost wouldn't have come along to settle his score with Appleby.
