Book Description

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Antiques and murder too! 28 Mar. 2013
By JJ
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was thrilled to see Lovejoy back in print (and on Kindle) after such a long absence. The mysteries are very satisfying and you get advice on antiques too. I live in Colchester, so it's an added bonus that I know the very streets he's talking about. Sadly the auction room is now gone, but the Castle Museum, The Marquis of Granby, Head Street etc. are still there. You can do a Lovejoy tour if you like! Great stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovejoy's Treasure Hunt 10 April 2013
By M. Dowden HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
John Grant, writing under the name of Jonathan Gash gives us here the second Lovejoy novel, first published in 1978. Lovejoy finds himself going through a cash flow problem, women are throwing themselves at him, but alas, the antiques business is a bit scarce on the ground. It starts though with a cleverly forged painting, but one that clearly shows to anyone who knows their onions that it is a fake. Trying to find out more by the painter he comes across details of a break-in at the local museum.

With a box containing two identical diaries from the recently deceased artist, and the details of what that person had donated to the museum, Lovejoy is off on a treasure hunt. With the death of a fellow dealer, threats, and deaths even closer to home, Lovejoy has to keep his wits about him, especially as he is also trying to train the witless Algernon, as a favour. Will Lovejoy find his treasure, and can it possibly be somewhere it shouldn't?

The Lovejoy books if you have never read any before, do differ from the tv series, so be prepared that you won't be reading something exactly the same. Of course you still have Lovejoy giving his tips on antiques, and in this book there is a fun section when he does some forgeries to raise cash. This has excitement, adventure and humour so it should keep you reading quite happily to the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! 23 Jun. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have seen the odd Lovejoy on tv so this was a revelation! I find him very sexist but I imagine Ian McShane and that makes it ok [ooohh!!] also the early books were written in the 70s and its important to keep that in mind. The stories are full of surprises, humour and lots of fascinating info about antiques. Jolly well worth reading, I am going to download them all in time that's how much I enjoy them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable read! 23 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed this series and would recommend them all. However, becoming a little similar in plot. ie., always bad guys, beaten up, against all the odds, success. Even so, good read well written.

3.0 out of 5 stars Typical Lovejoy 11 Jun. 2014
By Wobette
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have a love-hate relationship with Jonathan Gash and Lovejoy. I love the first person style and the impression you get that Lovejoy is never quite off duty from the antiques trade. I hate the fact that all his novels seem a little disjointed in the first half and rushed in the second.

This one is no exception to that rule. Lovejoy, intrigued by a picture hanging on a wall of one of his many female customers, and which is obviously a fake, follows the clues left by the recently deceased forger in the hope his hunch that it will lead to a stack of Roman gold is right. But he is not the only one on the trail and some one tries to put the frighteners on him. The race tho find the gold is on...

It takes a long time for this book to settle and when it finally moves to the Isle of Man the story gallops to its conclusion very quickly with the end feeling about as creative as a tick list. It's a shame there is not more balance between the two halves.

I moved onto this one fairly rapidly after completing the first novel (The Judas Pair). Like other readers I've got past the differences in Lovejoy's character from the TV series. I was disappointed there was not that much continuity from the first book - ie no reference to getting the house sorted, etc but only a very minor niggle and it also means you can really read this as a standalone without worrying about what has happened before. As other reviewers have mentioned there are a lot of typos in the Kindle edition which is extremely sloppy especially when you think you can pick up a decent second hand book for as little as a penny plus postage, but I'm not deducting from the star rating for that. Clearly the books are set a little earlier than the TV series and the characters ARE slightly different but I've enjoyed both novels so far.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun read 19 Nov. 2013
By Elaine Tomasso TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm new to the Lovejoy books although I remember the Tv series. In this one Lovejoy is broke but he gets wind of hidden roman gold and sets off in pursuit. This is a fun read. Lovejoy is a loveable rogue and he is slowly assembling a good cast of characters around him.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
Wrongly, I thought the character would be as portrayed as the Lovejoy on TV. I didn't like this character or the story. Maybe I expected too much.
