When Jimmy Pitt bets an actor friend that any fool could burgle a house, offering to demonstrate the feat that very night, he puts his reputation on the line.
Jimmy hires the services of a professional burglar, but his difficulties are increased when he has the misfortune to select police captain McEachern's house for the burglary. And imagine Jimmy's consternation when he learns that Captain McEachern's daughter is none other than the beautiful Molly, whom he has worshipped from afar for quite some time.
The story moves from New York to Dreever Castle in Shropshire, England, where Jimmy's bird comes home to roost—with a vengeance.
Filled with the sights, smells, and sounds of rural England, A Gentleman of Leisure contains all the wit and humor we have come to expect from the inimitable P. G. Wodehouse.
