Publication: Collins, 1980, London
First edition. A tiny portion of a name stamp to the under edges (and is definitely not a remainder mark), else a fine, bright copy in a bright. unfaded dust jacket. On a dark and rainy night, antiques dealer Lovejoy witnesses a car being forced off the road and over an embankment; the mortally injured driver turns out to be Leckie, a fellow antiques dealer and old army chum. Lovejoy's search for the villains is spiced with the promise of a valuable cache of antiques hidden somewhere at the end of the line. Most elusive of the Lovejoy titles. A sharp copy.
