This is the second Lovejoy Mystery I have read. So far, I have found something objectionable in both of them. But, there is humour.

I feel guilty about giving this book a fairly poor three stars. I know why I give it such a low response: it is because I came to Lovejoy via the TV series of the 1990's. I, therefore, expect the characters to reflect my televisual memories.

Sadly, Lovejoy is much more down to earth, honest money grabbing dodgy dealer, Tinker is a repulsive old soak and the other favourites, non existent. I am thus biased against Mr Gash's book from the first page. Whether this caused me not to concentrate sufficiently upon the plot, but I found this story to jump occasionally, in ways that I didn't quite understand.

That's my biased opinion.
