Hot Water - P. G. Wodehouse 1932 - Herbert Jenkins Limited, London - First Edition, in early issue dust jacket (1949) The house-party at Chateau Blissac, Brittany, features a rather odd array of guests this year...

Mr J. Wellington Gedge is hoping for some peace and quiet while his wife takes herself off for a while. She, however, has invited numerous visitors to the chateau, to whom he will have to play reluctant host. Senator Opal and his daughter Jane are expected and the Chateau's handsome, gadabout owner Vicomte de Blissac. When a certain letter goes missing, landing the Senator in the proverbial hot water, its up to Packy Franklyn, a great pal of the Vicomte's, to sort out the mess. Unfortunately, this involves a little light safe-cracking. Luckily, Packy bumps into the light-fingered Soup Slattery...
