Storyline

Lovejoy arrives early at an estate auction and switches numbers on two pieces so he can fool Gimbert and Vial and get a beautiful, 300 year old Welsh oaken dresser at a reduced cost. When Eric looks inside one of its stuck drawers, he discovers a beautiful Arab wedding headdress replete with a dozen Renaissance Venitian gold coins, Lovejoy is ecstatic. However, he finds that he's being stalked by the recently paroled convict who stashed it there years before and now is seeking to regain his loot armed with an ax. Written by duke1029@aol.com
