Publication: Collins, 1984, London
First edition. Page edges just beginning to tan, else a fine, bright copy in a price-clipped dust jacket. Lovejoy mystery. While wondering why certain dealers are bidding themselves into poverty for a fake painting, Lovejoy is invited to check whether antiques being secretly lifted from Venice are genuine. The offer is too good to refuse, but it involves him with a particularly ugly bunch of crooks.
