A famous gunsmith made thirteen sets of flintlock dueling pistols during the Regency Period, and his last set has carried with it an unsavory reputation over the succeeding centuries. It certainly proves unlucky for its current owner, who is murdered and the set stolen. However, what the obsessive collector did not know is that the set was incomplete. Two matched screwdrivers especially made for the set are missing, and Lovejoy knows where they are. Unfortunately the murderer knows that he knows. Written by
