Summary

What would you do if you found out that a long-ago acquaintance left you the equivalent of millions of dollars in his will? That's exactly what happens to down-on-his-luck Lord Dawlish in P. G. Wodehouse's Uneasy Money. Although the funds are a much-needed financial blessing, Dawlish isn't entirely comfortable with the inheritance and sets off on a quest to put things right—with plenty of stops along the way to indulge his love of golf, theater, and the opposite sex.
