The Butler Did It

P. G. Wodehouse
The Butler Did It

This is much better than the first three stories from the collection in that it has a decent plot, and plot twist, about a marriage tontine (bet).  There are again typos, and at least the third character named Bill in the volume, but I wasn't as restless as before.  Hardly classic Wodehouse, but on a level with If I Were You.  The volume averages out to a C, so I won't be keeping it.  Oh, and the title of this story could apply to any of the five stories, since they all contain butlers, although Avenel seems to think Jeeves is a butler, rather than a valet.
