The Art Forger, B. A. Shapiro
Really interesting, strong female character? Check. Fascinating look into the world of counterfeit art? Check. Suspense, drama, this book really had it all and I found it immensely enjoyable. Kirkus noted that it was a stronger on process than on plot, but the process was so fascinating that I didn’t mind that yes, one could poke some holes in the plot if one were feeling pokey, but I was too interested in the descriptions of painting, copying a great painter’s work exactly, and the main character’s internal ethical struggle to worry about that. 3.5 Stars.
