Clay Small - The Forger’s Forgery

Intricate plot, characters you’d like to get to know (well… not all of them), and just enough non-fiction to be both fun and educational. That’s Clay G. Small’s latest book in the Henry Lindon saga―The Forger’s Forgery. Clay’s depictions are so clear you can almost see the yellow-stained fingers holding the Gauloises cigarette. And when finished, you find yourself excited to see Clay leaves a hint that the saga will continue.”

The Forger’s Forgery

Novel by Clay G. Small

When art mimics life, somebody’s going to get what’s coming to them…

Professor Henry Lindon’s plane has just touched down in Amsterdam, where he’s come to work as a visiting professor.  Lindon is torn between leaving his troubled wife, Marylou, behind in Dallas and feeling relieved and excited about starting a new chapter in a lively city. The taxi drops him off at an elegant building at Roetersstraat 8-1, where he’s greeted by his university liaison and soon-to-be neighbor, the lovely and spunky art professor Bernadette Gordon.  After settling into his apartment, Lindon changes clothes and sets out to explore canals and cafes, wondering what the dinner invitation from Bernadette means for his fresh start.

But troubles from the past soon cross the Atlantic.  Lindon discovers that the notorious Dutch art forger Han van Meegeren, born in 1899, is about to play a part in Lindon’s own personal drama. With evil closing in, Lindon, Bernadette, and Marylou find that secrets of the art world may hold the key to settling old scores and putting a predator away for good.
