Summary

Lovejoy has heard of more nutters who have claimed to be in possession of the one, true Holy Grail than he has had hot dinners. He's not too impressed with the eccentric clergyman making the latest claim - especially when the good vicar turns out to be one of the finest forgers Lovejoy has ever met.

But when the vicar and his lady companion end up dead it becomes clear that someone else is after the old man's artefact. To solve the mystery and protect a precious piece of history, Lovejoy puts his life on the line and acquires a surprising new partner....

joyous romp with laddish erudite antiques sleuth

Lovejoy, whilst not quite on a par with Bertie Wooster, is a truly English comic hero. The world of shady dealers, fabulous antique finds and smoky cafs and pubs in pre-Political Correctness East Anglia will draw you in as Lovejoy becomes entangled in another antique mystery. Combining unapologetic laddishness with an erudite passion for genuine antiques Lovejoy is a believable lead in a cast of well drawn characters almost worthy of Dickens and Austen. Michael Fenton Stevens does a great job bringing the stories to life.
