In Volume I, Adventures, Mike Resnick introduced us to Lucifer Jones, a con man traveling in Africa presenting himself as a missionary. As the author puts it, Lucifer unfortunately "isn't the brightest bulb in the lamp" and mirth rather than wealth is often the result of his endeavors.
Volume II followed Lucifer in Asia. This third volume tracks Lucifer's travels across Europe.
Of all the characters that Mike Resnick has created, Lucifer Jones remains his favorite.
