Storyline

A painter named Ashley Wilkes comes to Lovejoy's attention. His m.o. is to research cottages that have attractive, middle-aged women living in them, set up an easel in front of the cottage, and then charm the women when they come out to see what he;s doing. He usually ends up selling them the slapdash painting for a couple of hundred pounds and then bedding the woman of the house. Lovejoy has seen some of the artist's more serious impressionistic work and would like to represent him, but is threatened by an army major and some secret agent types who'll stop at nothing to locate one of Wilkes' past conquests.
