In 1945, a small-time Dutch art dealer was arrested for selling a forgery of a priceless national treasure - a painting by Vermeer - to Hitler's right-hand man. The charge was treason; the only possible sentence death. And yet Han van Meegeren languished in his dank prison cell, incapable of uttering the words that would set him free: 'I am a forger.' This riveting account of greed, hubris, excess, treason and fine art is the story of a failed artist and the greatest forger of all time.More

This was my first audible book and it was great.
The subject matter of the book was factual yet it was written as a novel. It kept you involved and interested from the very beginning.
I really liked the way the author depicted and built us up to the predicament the forger found himself in. Does he own up to the forgeries he has committed or does he risk conviction as a Nazi collaborator in the war?
Richard Burnip sets the tone of the book brilliantly. I was captivated from the beginning.
Genuis and Fraudster?
My first experience of audible books on my kindle was a good one. I am now look forward to trying out greater varieties of works.
