Overview
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.

The macabre mutilation-murder of a rare book dealer at his beachfront cottage in Montauk, Long Island, kicks off this sly, artfully limned crime novel. Will, the narrator, has a shady past that threatens to catch up with him. He begins receiving letters that were seemingly written by long dead authors but are really from someone with a vendetta against him and knowledge of the murder. Reader Bray finds appropriate voices and attitudes for the relatively small cast of characters—including Will’s girlfriend, Meghan, bereft after her brother’s death; Atticus Moore, the New England–accented avuncular book dealer; and Will’s blackmailer, whose overdone civility, in the course of a short conversation, quickly gives way to cold fury. But Bray’s strongest contribution is his rendering of Will, through a performance that adds dimension to the purposefully undefined narrator. Bray presents Will as urbane but with a touch of raffishness, someone whose dispassionate view of the world is just short of sociopathy. It’s a striking example of how audio can successfully embrace and enhance an author’s intent. A Mysterious Press hardcover. (Nov.)
