When the sale of an oversized antique Welsh cupboard falls through, Lovejoy is stuck with the enormous piece of furniture and a mover's bill. After Charlie Gimbert pulls his leg about wanting it he ends up storing it with Eric's uncle Jack, a pub owner in the salty western marshlands. Tink joins Eric for a leisurely inexpensive vacation consisting of drinking and birdwatching. After attending a dinner at Charlotte's along with fellow antique dealers Ellen and Bill Palmer, Lovejoy falls under the suspicion of an ambitious and ruthless Metropolitan DCI who suspects that Lovejoy is dealing with stolen smuggled European furniture. The detective becomes convinced that Lovejoy is guilty when the supposedly collegial Ellen sics the policeman on his trail. Written by
