Acerca de


A Lovejoy novel. Fleeing to France with horse-mad Almira, Lovejoy is estranged from antiques divvying - until he's let loose in the biggest spending spree ever in gay Paree. Furniture, silver and ceramics - genuine and fake - pass before his eyes, as he worries about drug-crazed minders, his militaristic boss and a female smuggler hunter whom he has accidentally slept with. It will all end in the biggest scam of antiques history, but Lovejoy doesn't yet know the terrible price that playing with the big boys exacts.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Larcenous, lecherous Lovejoy, in his 16th escapade, beds seven women--with predictable complications--but his most serious trouble arises from the one who got away, his ex-wife Cissie, now married to Paul and dallying with Troude, and, as is her wont, sternly doing her best to make trillions out of Lovejoy's talent as a divvy (diviner of real antiques). The scheme she's part of was two years in the planning, skips from East Anglia to Paris to Zurich, caused the death of two men, the pummeling of another, depended on child- slaves cranking out antiques in sweatshops, and drew the attention of the Stolen Art and Purloined Antiques Squad--and, of course, centered on the compliance of Lovejoy, who was duped into thinking he was keeping a solemn promise to her when he took part in Troude's major insurance company swindle/repository fire/antique- buying jaunt. At scheme's end, Lovejoy is as broke as ever and, as usual, has his eye out for a spiffy new bird to cavort with. Despairing readers will search in vain for a glossary and a coherent storyline. Still, the erudite Gash offers up entertaining nuggets for both history and antiques buffs. -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
