Here in his 24th outing, the charming if less than scrupulous antiques dealer Lovejoy is released from jail on the condition he join the elegant Laura Moon's speed-dating agency. A divorced millionairess, Ms. Moon proposes a temporary marriage of convenience to help her hunt down her former husband. And if he goes through with it, will he find himself dead for his efforts?
"Lovejoy agrees, but before the ink is dry on the marriage register, a couple of his friends suffer fatal accidents.... Gash makes the British slang easy to follow for American readers and throws in plenty of authentic antiques lore."—Publishers Weekly
