Jeeves in the Offing is a novel by P. G. Wodehouse, first published in the United States on April 4 1960 by Simon & Schuster, Inc., New York, under the title "How Right You Are, Jeeves", and in the United Kingdom on August 12 1960 by Herbert Jenkins, London.

The ninth Jeeves novel, "Jeeves in the Offing" chronicles another visit by Bertie Wooster to his Aunt Dahlia at Brinkley Court, and marks the beginning of the friendship between Bertie and Sir Roderick Glossop, who previously shared a great dislike for one another. Like most of Wodehouse's stories, this one employs ripe and humorous language to great effect.
