Publisher's Summary

From critically acclaimed novelist Bradford Morrow, called "a mesmerizing storyteller who casts an irresistible spell" by Joyce Carol Oates and "one of America's major literary voices" by Publishers Weekly, comes The Forgers, a richly told thriller about the dark side of the rare book world.
The rare book world is stunned when a reclusive collector, Adam Diehl, is found dead on the floor of his Montauk home, hands severed, surrounded by valuable inscribed books and original manuscripts that have been vandalized beyond repair. Adam's sister, Meghan, and her lover, Will - a convicted but unrepentant literary forger - struggle to come to terms with the seemingly incomprehensible murder. But when Will begins receiving threatening letters written in the handwriting of long-dead authors from someone who knows secrets about Adam's death and Will's past, he understands his own life is also on the line.
The Forgers delves deeply into the passions that drive collectors to the razor's edge of morality, brilliantly confronting the hubris and mortal danger of attempting to rewrite history with a fraudulent pen.

Unpleasant, predictable

Nothing to like in this nasty story that tries to be Gone girl tricky and fails.

Agree with the Mundane opinion reviewer

Although I am glad I stuck this book out for the ending, I could not figure out if it was dull because of the story or the narrator. A better narrator might have livened it up, but the main character seemed to be spending inordinate amounts of time doing housework type tasks. It could have been more interesting if the author had done more research on forger types.
