Our whole coast hereabouts is indented by creeks, inlets, tidal mudflats and marshes.

Our whole coast hereabouts is indented by creeks, inlets, tidal mudflats and marshes les on the low skyline. They have a buttoned-up look about them even on the mildest day. Then the sea marshes show between the long runs of banks and dykes. You see the masts foresting thinly among the dunes’ tufted undulations. Anglers abound, sitting gawping at their strings in all weathers. A few blokes can be seen digging in the marsh flats among the weeds

As written by Mr. Gash, Lovejoy always demonstrates a veneer of self-serving cowardice,avarice, and humanity covering a heart of gold as true as the antiques he loves.

As written by Mr. I always enjoyed the show, but it could never compare to the genuine article that the author never failed to deliver.

Firefly Gadroon book. Jonathan Gash's entertaining expertise covers everything from Queen Anne baby walkers and stumpwork boxes to the ultimate antique: the hand-hammered silver Reve Lovejoy - unscrupulous conniver, feckless lecher, and more important, gifted visionary who loves beautiful antiques more than life itself - marshals all of his diverse skills to revenge the murder of an old friend.

Entertains and educational. Writing is both fluid and entertaining.
Antiques specialist and dealer (just a teeny bit shonky!)Lovejoy is left guardian of his friend Drummers' donkey when Drummers' hideously battered body is discovered in the dunes surrounding the salt marshes near the Essex coast.He is shown a curious firefly cage by an aggressive woman who claims that it had belonged to her deceased uncle and needed Lovejoys'help to open it, revealing a small hollow in its base. Lovejoy finally comes to realise that it is a model of the small WW2 naval fort which had stood guard at the entrance to the marshes during the war but was now deserted. He risks life and limb to get out to the fort which is several miles out to sea, and discovers the hiding place to be a repository for stolen antiques. It's an interesting story, full of country humour and good detail about antiques and the business. I'll be looking for more of this series.

Lovejoy is a rogue, but a most endearing one. In this book we see Lovejoy at his most vulnerable. One of his mentors gets killed and he blames himself for it. And it all started with an antique firefly box. Lovejoy gets caught up in an international antiques smuggling ring, and his friend loses his life because of what he happens to see the thieves doing. Lovejoy and his new trusty friend Germoline (who happens to be a donkey) set out to try to right a wrong. As usual Lovejoy has no faith in the local constabulary, and gets himself in a pack of trouble because "He will try to fix things himself". There is a lot of sea stuff in this book, and I must say that it is handled very well. The sea is a different setting for Lovejoy, but he seems as much at home in that environment as he does on dry land. This is a reamarkable series.
The writing was very captivating with lots of action and suspense. The whole idea of hidden treasure in East Anglia and the puzzle of the carved coal were intriguing. The reliance on characters previously developed helped give more depth to both the characters and the story. A real winner.
