Lovejoy is a willing teacher, guiding her through the minefield of auctions, the dating and faking of antiques, 'grand scams' of the trade - and other, more intimate, subjects. However, not everything is rosy on Lovejoy's home patch. A grisly murder occurs - and then another …. And the flow of antiques is mysteriously drying up.
