The Very Last Gambado is a good book. Do youself a favor and skip California Game entirely. I had been enjoying the Lovejoy series until that awful book that should never have been published.

The Very Last Gambado is a good book. One person found this helpful. Nicholas Gash is always entertaining but he isn't always informative.

Lovejoy is a series of picaresque novels by John Grant (under the pen name Jonathan Gash) about the adventures of Lovejoy, a British antiques dealer and faker based in East Anglia. A less than scrupulous yet likeable rogue, Lovejoy has a reputation in the antiques trade as a "divvie", meaning one with an almost supernatural talent for recognising exceptional items as well as for distinguishing fakes or forgeries from genuine antiques. Lovejoy's first name is never mentioned in the books

A good Lovejoy mystery full of twists and different from most others

This is a big, brash Lovejoy caper, and as wonderful as it is, I wouldn't recommend this to be read before any other books in this wonderful series. This book's plot and the huge caper are very complex, and Lovejoy has really bitten off more than he can chew in this one. Lovejoy is recruited to act as a consultant for a film about a robbery from the British Museum. Lovejoy knows all along that he's a pawn in some crook's game, but he can't figure out why they need him. Lovejoy, you're too modest - not only are you a divy, but your reputation preceeds you! Anyway, Lovejoy ends up mixing up with some very bad people, and he even finds himself in between two mob bosses that are after each other's blood. I love all the books in this series, but I would have to say that this particular book is my favourite so far. It is the "very last gambado" (the big score), just as the title states.

This book was the next published after Jade woman. Chronologially California Game follows Jade woman as Lovejoy fled Hong Kong in Jade Woman to the USA where he encountered the California Game. The Very Last Gambado is a good book. Do youself a favor and skip California Game entirely. I had been enjoying the Lovejoy series until that awful book that should never have been published.

Nicholas Gash is always entertaining but he isn't always informative. Despite best efforts to keep characters straight, track possible motives and alibis and follow a labyrinthine plot, it was still difficult to figure out what the hell was going on. The plot fairly gallops and Lovejoy is truly delightful, but I got a little weary always trying to figure out how things matched up. I will no doubt tackle another Lovejoy soon, but I will need a break before I do so.
