Beautiful antiques dealer Valerie Endacott feigns fainting at an auction in order to divert attention while her boyfriend, a skilled ceramics forger, switches the valuable china miniature Charlie Gimbert has just won with one of his fakes. When expert Percy Broderick informs Charlie that he's in possession of a forgery, Lovejoy goes undercover, posing as Eric in order to entrap the wily Miss Endacott. Lovejoy also is on the trail of the ring of burglars that has been breaking into the homes of well-to-do collectors, Charlotte becoming their latest victim. As a sidebar, Charlotte's old boyfriend from New York shows up and tries to talk her into going to Paris with him. Written by
