Summary

Young Jerry West has a few problems. His uncle Crispin is broke and employs a butler who isn't all he seems. His other uncle, Willoughby, is rich but won't hand over any of his inheritance. And to cap it all, although already engaged, Jerry has just fallen in love with the wonderful Jane Hunnicutt, whom he's just met on jury service. But she's an heiress, and that's a problem, too - because even if he can extricate himself from his grasping fiancée, Jerry can't be seen to be a gold-digger.

Enter "The Girl in Blue" - a Gainsborough miniature which someone has stolen from Uncle Willoughby. Jerry sets out on a mission to find her - and somehow, hilariously, everything comes right.

Left me anything but blue!

I was feeling the cold when I started this, and was so enchanted and cheered that I couldn't stop listening. It's read brilliantly and the characters come alive, and it didn't matter a bit that the plot was so obvious - in fact that just added to the pleasure.

Second rank Wodehouse but still very good value

What does Graham Seed bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Graham Seed (Nigel Pargeter, deceased) makes an excellent and sympathetic addition to the roster of Wodehouse readers

Hilarious tale; wonderfully read.

The story is classic PG Wodehouse with all his quintessential hilarious twists and turns. The narrator makes the prose even better by giving his voice to it.
