    One thought on “The Sleepers of Erin”

    1. Lovejoy, the anti-hero protagonist of this mystery series, is involved in yet another antiques scam, this time in Ireland. It’s been years since I read a Lovejoy story, and I didn’t remember Lovejoy or the series as this violent, with numerous “accidents”, serious injuries, and deaths.

    2. Right, I need to explain something here, lest you other users of Good Reads think I am some sort of ne'er-do-well. I have rated this book one star higher than the last Lovejoy escapade that I read. In the review for that one I mentioned that, aside from a thought about it in paragraph two, Lovejoy did not strike a woman. In this book, he belts one and knocks her clean out.I am not basing my star ratings on Lovejoy's abusive fists. I just preferred the story of this one. The last one bored the be [...]

    3. There is Lovejoy minding his own business enjoying post coital bliss late at night in a church when some "collegues in the trade" attempt to rob the church of its valuables. When Lovejoy attempts to stop the robbery he ends up in hospital and being a suspect of the robbery, since the real robbers were friendly enough to leave one damning piece of evidence behind in his cottage (of course the cheapest piece of the stolen goods). Whne Lovejoy gets released from hospital he gets an alibi from an un [...]

    4. This Lovejoy mystery follows the same formula in a previous entry, The Vatican Rip, in that some unsavory people 'convince' Lovejoy to help them out with acquiring an antique. This one also takes place in a different place other than England, though I didn't get as strong a sense of place as I did from Vatican.As much as I enjoy these stories, I find that Lovejoy has not changed a bit and still treats woman the same as he did in the first book, is oblivious to anything being his fault and always [...]

    5. I enjoy both the Lovejoy TV series and the books, though they have a surprisingly different feel to them. The books are quite a bit grittier. TV Lovejoy is the proverbial scamp with a heart of gold. The book Lovejoy is too in a way, but seems to be much seedier and harder to find the heart of gold underneath.

    6. Per the cover blurb it's "a Lovejoy Novel of Suspense". Lovejoy is an antique dealer who gets himself mixed up in some kinda shenanigans. He's not the sharpest bulb in the shed, but he figures it out. Except he doesn't. Then he does. Maybe. Very funny at times, I'd like to read more of these Lovejoy novels of suspense.

    7. This was the first Lovejoy mystery I have read. I was put off by the character of Lovejoy - I don't like the way he treats women, and he is unreasonably violent. However, the story itself was good and kept me interested, and it had some good twists, which I always like. The information about antiques, real and faked, was interesting, too.

    8. One of the best Lovejoy adventures I have picked up. Moves along better than some of Gash's others. Great race through Ireland with the usual despicably-idle-rich snobs using Lovejoy's talents to their own ends, and Lovejoy doing his best just to keep his neck above water (or mud, in this case).

    9. Lovejoy is "persuaded" to play his part in an ambitious scam, involving travel to the Emerald Isle. Lots goes wrong, people are not what they seem, but he survives.

    10. I really enjoy these Lovejoy books, they are quick, witty and have some great nuances that ensure you are a little off balance. It is hard not to root for the main character.

    11. Jonathan Gash's literary Lovejoy is a good deal more corrupt and criminal than the TV version starring Ian MacShane, but both have their charms. This is a good entry in the series.
