Storyline

At the funeral of an old friend, a noted antiques forger, Lovejoy and his friends pay their respects to his widow, who finds solace in his only legacy to her, an antique snuffbox. Although she is disappointed when Lovjoy tells her it was one of her husband's skilled forgeries, it still holds sentimental value for her. When a thief steals it, and a priest shoplifts two other snuffboxes from the estate sale, Lovejoy smells a rat. After he exposes the priest as Smiley O'Reilly, a crook active in the antiques trade, Lovejoy realizes that the boxes might hold clues to a secret cache of loot. Written by Anonymous
