Publisher's Summary

'I don't much like working for clients. It means that I have to follow someone else's instructions, and I've never been too good at that. When those instructions came from a spirit guide at a seance, I just had to laugh. Well, you would, wouldn't you? The rather attractive young woman whose husband the spook had said I should help her to find took me on a quest that turned into a trail of lucrative antiques deals, spoiled only when the police came plodding in, and I found myself up to my neck in forgeries and murders. Situation normal, really. Then the killer turned his attentions to me, just as the spirit had said he would, and I certainly wasn't laughing any more.'

Some books shouldn't be on audio.

I love the Lovejoy character, but unless you're doing absolutely nothing else while listening this will be difficult to follow. There's a thousand characters. Even relatively undistracted while driving I could barely follow.

Back to home turf.

After Lovejoy's extensive travelling in the previous couple of instalments, this one is cosily back within his native stomping ground of East Anglia: which i found refreshing. It's a solid mystery with all the usual Lovejoy twists and turns, with plenty of antiques trivia, cynicism, and devious ladies.

Good narration as always from MFS.
