Lovejoy, renowned and roguish sleuth, is at it again. As usual, the antiques world is a far more lively place in his vicinity. Lovejoy isn't a master antique dealer, but he is a master at being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Leaving a mundane auction for an amorous assignation, he witnesses the calculated murder of a fellow dealer. The question is why. After searching the victim's car, the killers leave empty-handed. Clearly they wanted something. Clearly they didn't find it. Lovejoy is tracking down just what sparked their interest, unofficially and anonymously of course, when he's given a letter written by the victim shortly before he died. Suffice it to say that Lovejoy's cover has been blown .

Professional reviews

"Lovejoy is up to his usual tricks--antiques, ladies and pub crawling (not necessarily in that order)! Christopher Kay presents Lovejoy perfectly as he regales us with the murder game in this first-person narration. Another antiques dealer is murdered, keeping Lovejoy, his lady loves, and all of his cronies busy looking for a murderer in their midst. An insider's delivery of antique lingo is fun and informative. However, the real humor comes forth as Kay delivers Lovejoy's puns and asides spot on! Antique and mystery buffs alike will reap rewards as they listen. S.G.B. (c) AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine"
