    In the 80s I rather enjoyed the Lovejoy TV series with Ian McShane. He was a bit of a bungler but everything always came out well. Then I came across The Judas Pair and got about a third of the way through it before I got sidetracked, and it wasn't memorable enough to go back to--partly when he hopped in the sack with a much-older woman for lack of anything better to do with an afternoon. When I came across "Jade Woman" for some reason I decided to give it another go. The woman in the title is n [...]

    nwhytevejournal/1983456ml[return][return][return][return]Another Lovejoy book with a particularly implausible plot, allowing Gash to place his hero in Hong Kong (not contemporary 1980s Hong Kong, but the 1960s city that the author clearly knew well and loved) for fun with organised crime, sex work and inventing a previously unheard-of Chinese Impressionist painter. The antiques scam itself is as beautifully detailed as Gash's description of the city, and Lovejoy is clear that the criminality in [...]

    It's hard to read 'Lovejoy' if you are a fan of the BBC series. There is a darker side to Lovejoy and the antiques trade than is portrayed on television. In the books Lovejoy is more on his own(or with his enemies) than the merry band of characters on television(some of which are only mentioned and never appear).Gash novels are perfect when you are in between books you actually want to read.The dialogue isn't always chatty or memorable but his descriptions of antiques and in this case the landsc [...]

    Lovejoy could have been more instrumental in getting himself out of his predicament, which pulls the book down a bit, but OMG the predicament itself was entertaining as hell. And I had Ian McShane's voice narrating the story in my head, which is never a bad thing.

    Lovejoy is a charming, funny, conman-with-a-soft-heart protagonist. Well worth reading more of this series. This particular book stretched a little long in a few too many places, but was enjoyable overall.

    Another very fun Lovejoy. Actually, it might be his best yet. Now the campy gay character he always has is just putting it on. Makes me want to go to Hong Kong.

    Cool setting, but Lovejoy spends three quarters of the book completely clueless and has very little to do with the resolution of the story.There is no charm and cleverness in these books. Get DVDs of the TV show instead. Much more fun and the TV Lovejoy is a much more interesting character.
