A richly told thriller about the dark side of the rare book world.
Mysterious Press, November 2014
“a fine writer with an extraordinary feel for the physicality of fiction” (Boston Globe)
“one of America’s major literary voices” (Publishers Weekly)
The rare book world is stunned when a reclusive collector, Adam Diehl, is found 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 if unrepenting 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 and attempts to forge a new beginning for himself and Meg. In THE FORGERS, Morrow reveals the passion that drives collectors to the razor-sharp edge of morality, brilliantly confronting the hubris and mortal danger of rewriting history with a fraudulent pen.
THE FORGERS is already receiving advance praise: Nicholas Basbanes, author of A Gentle Madness and On Paper, has raved, “With The Forgers, Bradford Morrow has masterfully combined an exquisitely thickening plot, an informed appreciation of the antiquarian book world, and a deep understanding of what makes the obsessive people who inhabit this quirky community do the sort of impassioned things they sometimes do, up to and including the commission of horrific crimes… This is a bibliomystery you will want to inhale in one sitting.
