In Lovejoy's world, there are those who have it in for the brash antiques dealer: competitors, customers, women (and sometimes their husbands), and the British police, aided by an avid bounty hunter. Usually, he can slide out from under, or talk himself out of trouble. But this time, Lovejoy is tricked into being held on a cruise ship when it sails - and discovers that what is wanted is his knowledge for the commission of a crime.
Available only in Mystery 4.

"Lecherous, crooked, filthy but loveable... smashing."
-- The Times (UK) on A Rag, a Bone, and a Hank of Hair
"Deviously plotted and brimming with the most delicious inside details about the antiques trade."
-- The New York Times Book Review on A Rag, a Bone, and a Hank of Hair
"Sparkles with Gash's characteristic energy and wit."
--Publishers Weekly on A Rag, a Bone, and a Hank of Hair
"With a new character, a new bedmate, and a new scam on almost every page, the plot is evanescent, to be enjoyed for Lovejoy's unapologetic chutzpah and for his author's breezy narration and vast knowledge, willingly shared, of the antiques world."
--Kirkus Reviews on The Rich and the Profane
"A very stylish entry in the series... [Gash is] a master of top-notch narrative skill. On the evidence of this outing, the literary Lovejoy franchise is in no need of vitamin supplements."
--Crime Time on The Rich and the Profane
"That lecherous Lothario Lovejoy is at it again in yet another highly entertaining adventure involving murder, antiques, and beautiful women."
--Booklist on The Possessions of a Lady
