Eric brings Lovejoy an ancient gold funerary figure from Colombia and asks him to act as agent in its sale. The owner is a heavy metal rock musician, but they soon find out that it is the property of a music promoter, who tells Lovejoy that he wants to get rid of it because it has a curse on it. That proves all too true when the musician and an art dealer each turn up murdered with an Amazonian poison dart and a seductive Latin beauty enters the picture with a keen interest in the statuette too.

Did You Know?


The golden statuette is from Colombia. That seems to contradict the title "Montezuma's Revenge" as Montezuma was Emperor of the Aztecs in Mexico. See more »


Lovejoy: Nothing like an old curse to add a bob or two to the price.
