D.S. Arnie Pulver, an old Lovejoy nemesis, has become frustrated by his inability to obtain a case against a "likeable" Polish sea captain who has been smuggling art treasures from the churches of Poland. Pulver feels ha needs an antiques expert, so he has Tinker framed on charges of pornography when he lectures a woman's club or erotic art in order to coerce both Lovejoy and Tinker into helping him run a sting on the captain and his British buyer, an upscale pawnbroker.
