Lovejoy discovers how the lure of gold brings out the worst kind of treasure seeker when, broke as usual and earning a crust as an unlikely babysitter, he stumbles across the diaries of a painter that appear to point to the whereabouts of a fabled hoard of Roman gold coins.
Lovejoy is tempted to dismiss the whole thing as a hoax, but vile threats and violent intimidation have a way of changing his mind. He sets out to unravel the clues in the diaries, with some particularly nasty characters dogging his every move.

Not my favourite. Too much focus on Lovejoy in the first person and too little character development. A little too funny by half interlaced with a mocking haughtiness.
Overall. I am a fan of the books , their premise , setting , ifestyle and rogues gallery, but this a little too tongue in cheek for me.
"Antiques are Everything ".
"Antiques are Everything ". And Lovejoy is right, modernism is rubbish.
Brilliant book, highly recommended.
