The ninth Earl of Rowcester, also known as Bill, has a certain Jeeves temporarily in his employment. At the racetrack Bill, posing as a bookie, has run off with Captain Biggar's generous winnings and retreated to Rowcester Abbey. There he encounters his old amour, the very rich and beautiful Mrs Spottsworth, who is considering buying the property. She is hotfoot from a chance encounter with Captain Biggar and romance is in the air... Time to ring for Jeeves.
