I'm delighted to announce a new novel. A suspenseful story set in Europe, it deals with the very real world of fraudulent fine art.
My husband and I recently traveled to the cities in the novel, including Amsterdam, Budapest, Salzberg, and Vienna. Actually, a visit to an Oklahoma City art museum two years ago started me thinking. How possible is very good fraudulent fine art?
(Very possible. Some experts estimate up to half of all art in museums is fake.)
And exactly how much copying is legal?
AMATEUR. MASTER. UNWILLING RECRUIT.
Dr. Richard Reed, wealthy professor and connoisseur of fine art, becomes a temporary member of Interpol's Experts Group to stop the flow of fraudulent paintings. He feels sure he has found a master copyist when he zones in on an attractive tourist, Kendra Cooper.
Kendra, who scrimped for years to travel to Amsterdam and study originals of the great masters, has much to teach the professor. His most likely suspect becomes his strongest asset in the fight against frauds until a dealer in counterfeits strikes back. Kendra becomes his target by cutting off the flow of unearned millions.
As professional partnership grows into personal devotion, Richard and Kendra combat greed to gain what cannot be bought.
As with all Lee Carver's books, Counterfeit is available from www.Amazon.com in both print http://amzn.to/2df8U9L
