Lovejoy finds his beautiful tour guide is more interested in working for the Venetian art smugglers than showing him St. Mark's Square. He has not been seeing the beautiful granddaughter Caterina in Venice as he had supposed, but her ruthless sister Valeria. She is more interested in the stolen art treasures for herself than for posterity. When he finds that Luciano, one of the ring's most skilled document forgers is really a Scotsman, they team together to liberate the priceless art from a cache that the thieves have on an abandoned island in the Adriatic.

Death and Venice: Part Two
9 August 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Part Two of Death and Venice has a plot that is labyrinth like as the narrow streets of Venice.

Lovejoy needs to help the pretty tour guide (with a dodgy Italian accent) get to safety after she is shot. Everywhere Lovejoy goes someone is following him or bumping into him and a few times he lands in the grand canal.

It turns out Pinder's offspring are less interested in saving the treasures of Venice and more interested in selling them or forgeries off them.

To this end Lovejoy bumps into Luciano, a skilled forger who is a Scotsman on the run.

Scene stealing Fulton Mackay plays Luciano in what was one of his last roles. It was always freaky to see him outside of his prison warden uniform.
