I don't much like working for clients. It means that I have to follow someone else's instructions, and I've never been too good at that. When those instructions came from a spirit guide at a seance, I just had to laugh. Well, you would, wouldn't you?
The rather attractive young woman whose husband the spook had said I should help her to fine took me on a quest that turned into a trail of lucrative antiques deals, spoiled only when the police came plodding in and I found myself up to my neck in forgeries and murders. Situation normal, really.
Then the killer turned his attentions to me, just as the spirit had said he would, and I certainly wasn't laughing an more.

Looking for a missing husband is not usually Lovejoy's cup of tea, but this missing husband happens to be an antiques dealer. As usual the police are less than tolerant of Lovejoy's motives and methods - and, as usual, Lovejoy uses his charm, wit, and a little scam of his own to see that justice triumphs.Review:
Surely now established as an enduring sleuth (and snogger). (The Times)
