The Lovejoy Mystery Series

The Gondola Scam

JACKET NOTES:  Can one person--even Lovejoy, the quintessential rogue--steal all the antiques in Venice?
Lovejoy, connoisseur of antiques, rhapsodizer of women, and all-around scamp, is hired by a millionaire collector to “rescue” every art treasure in Venice before the fabled city sinks into the sea. Lovejoy’s winning ways, flexible ethics, and resourceful chicanery are put to a vigorous test by the murderous men and dangerous women who cross his gondola’s path. In this fast-paced and outrageous caper, Lovejoy’s quest for the exquisite leads to an unexpected and terrifying climax.
