Friday Freebie: The Forgers by Bradford Morrow

Congratulations to Billie Hinton, winner of last week's Friday Freebie contest: Carthage by Joyce Carol Oates and Return to Oakpine by Ron Carlson.

This week's book giveaway is The Forgers, the new novel by Bradford Morrow, who's been called "a mesmerizing storyteller who casts an irresistible spell" by Oates herself.  One lucky reader will win a new hardback copy of the book.  Read on for more information about The Forgers...

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 unrepentant literary forger--struggle to come to terms with the seemingly incomprehensible murder.  But when Will begins receiving threatening handwritten letters, seemingly penned by long-dead authors, but really 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.
