Here’s what readers are saying about The Forger’s Forgery:
“Clay has a gift for engaging the reader, taking them to places they want to go, entertaining the reader and using his legal knowledge to create multiple mysteries which the reader looks forward to solving.”
Raymond Jacobson, McDermott, Will & Emery
“Perhaps one reason why The Forger’s Forgery is a complex mystery and yet realistic, is that it’s based on the true story of master forger Han van Meegeren, who forged the works of some Dutch masters in the 1930s and ’40s in a notorious crime that was clever, unprecedented, and difficult to solve.”
D. Donovan, Sr. Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
The Forger’s Forgery “… was a great read, cleverly constructed, very entertaining, exciting and humoristic.”
Friso Lammertse, author Van Meegeren’s Vermeers
“With his last novel, Heels Over Head, Clay Small made his debut as a gifted writer. In The Forger’s Forgery, Small weaves a suspenseful thriller set between Dallas and the art world of Amsterdam, a city close to his heart. It’s fast-paced and full of conflict, twists and surprises. I found it impossible to put down.”
Bradford Gardner, Managing Director, Boston Financial Management
“The Forger’s Forgery taught this Amsterdam resident a thing or two about the city I live in. The intriguing history around Han van Meegeren is exciting. Clay Small combines cultural detail, rich geographic description and countless plot twists to create an engaging and satisfying novel. Absolutely masterful!”
Kate Gordon, Amsterdam
Here’s what readers are saying about Heels over Head:
“Clay Small does a masterful job in his debut as a novelist. The uncanny twists and turns kept me up well past my bedtime as I simply could not put it down. You won’t be able to either!”
David Novak, Co-Founder and Retired Chairman YUM! Brands; author of The Accidential CEO, Taking People with You, and O Great One.
“Heels over Head is an adventure, a whodunit, and a road-trip story all in one. It hooked me with its colorful characters whose accents and turns of speech almost audibly jump off the page. And Clay Small brings his own decades of business expertise to bear, not just with insights into how executives think, behave, and sometimes misbehave, but also by confronting his characters with modern issues like gender and marriage equality. As we follow his villains, heroes, and everyone in between, Small cleverly gives us a window into the biases that still exist in the business world. That added dimension will leave you thinking, long after you’ve untangled the tightly woven storylines that make this book so fun to read.”
Jessica Shortall, Social Entrepreneur, LGBTQ Rights Advocate, and Author of Work. Pump. Repeat.
“A fast-paced, raucous ride through the worlds of hoity-toity academia and high-stakes finance with conflicting undercurrents of ruinous revenge, mistaken distrust and enduring love controlling the flow – a fast-paced read that was hard to put down.”
Hubert Crouch, author of Cried For No One and The Word
“Clay Small has populated his novel with a cast of characters who are both imaginative and credible. And he has used his intimate firsthand knowledge of the 21st century American university and global corporation to weave these characters through a thoroughly enjoyable and ultimately satisfying tale of intrigue and suspense. Heels over Head was for me the proverbial page-turner, and I sincerely hope I have not read the last of Professor Henry Lindon.”
Jack Wilkerson, Professor, Wake Forest University, School of Business
“Clay G. Small’s Heels over Head furiously kicks in from page one and keeps on kicking right through the enthralling story lines of how misinterpretations and grudges can turn into deadly revenge. I found myself in an all-out sprint of reading to get to the finish!”
Rusty Rueff, Silicon Valley Investor, Advisor, and Appointee to The President’s Advisory Committee for the Arts
“A well spun contemporary yarn thick with threads of characters and situations not always being what they appear… to which anyone can relate and everyone can thoroughly enjoy. Prepare for a fun and captivating ride.”
Tod J. MacKenzie, Senior V.P., Communications & Public Affairs, Aramark
“Clay has written a captivating and intelligent book that uniquely captures the richness of the connectivity among business, academia and society in the wonderful city of Dallas, Texas. If you ever lived in Dallas, you will immediately connect to the characters and the locations described in the book. Everyone else will be simply delighted by the twists and turns of revenge stretching from Wichita to Dallas to Buenos Aires.”
Kelly Mahon Tullier, Executive Vice President and General Counsel, Visa, Inc.
“This is not a testimonial. It´s a standing ovation to Clay and his book, a truly vivid and entertaining piece of literature from start to finish, back and forth. Clay clearly masters many aspects of writing and his description of my hometown of Buenos Aires and, more importantly, of its ambience and the way we “porteños” behave is simply perfect. It is one of the best books I have read in years.”
Marcelo Bombau, a porteño
