  • Neudobnye den'gi by N. Trauberg: 2008

To inherit five million dollars it to inherit substantial sum.

For William, Lord Dawlish, it seemed the realization of his dreams. He could marry the girl he loved.

Of course, things are not quite so simple. The famous Wodehouse humour, which has no equal, sees to that, in a transatlantic cocktail of breathtalking ingenuity.
