When Adam Diehl, a respected rare-books dealer, is bludgeoned to death in his Montauk home, his hands severed from his body, the terrible crime shakes New York's literary community to its core. But none are more devastated than Adam's bookseller sister, Meghan, and her devoted boyfriend, Will, who narrates this bookish whodunit. For Will's concern about Adam's death goes beyond his love for Meghan. In the wake of the murder, Will - a skilled yet reformed literary forger - begins receiving threatening letters referencing Adam's death, letters skillfully "signed" by none other than Arthur Conan Doyle, Henry James, and W. B. Yeats. It seems Adam and Will both ran afoul of a rival forger - a criminal now determined to collect his due. As suspense novels go, The Forgers isn't a fast-paced action thriller. Rather, it's a quietly chilling, often foreboding account of one man's struggle to live an honest life...even as he's haunted by the deceptions of his past. (KG)
