Lovejoy concocts a sting with rich American widow Cassandra Lynch and wealthy Japanese businessman Toshiro Tanaka to recover the money that con man/antiques dealer Harry Catalopolis defrauded from them with dodgy antiques with concocted provenance and outright forgeries. Utilizing a skilled French art forger and a Cockney conman who affects the appearance of an Orthodox Jew, Lovejoy convinces Catapolis that a priceless Catherine the Great icon can be had for 'only' three million dollars.
