Lovejoy meets another antique dealer, the affable Harry Catapolis at a dinner party hosted by a rich, beautiful American widow, Cassandra Lynch. Catapolis is in the process of selling a rich Japanese businessman the tea bowl used by the Emporer Hirohito just before resigning his divinity at the end of World War ii. Lovejoy proves the bowl to be a fake and points out to Cassandra that many of the objets d'art sold by Catapolis to her are forgeries. They all vow to revenge themselves on Catapolis using a priceless 9 million dollar icon once owned by Catherine the Great as bait. Written by
