The Forgery of Venus : A Novel, Paperback Book

The Forgery of Venus : A Novel Paperback



An artist born outside his time, Chaz Wilmot can paint like Leonardo, Goya, Gainsborough-and he refuses to shape his talent to fit the fashion of the day.

His unique abilities attract the attention of Werner Krebs, an art dealer with a dark past and shadier present, and soon Wilmot is working with a fervor he hasn't felt in years.

But his creative burst is accompanied by strange interludes-memories that are not memories . . . and he begins to wonder if he is really the person he believes he is.

When a previously unknown masterpiece by the Spanish painter Velazquez is discovered, the artist suddenly finds himself lost in a mirrored house of illusions-and propelled into a secret world of greed, lies . . . and murder.
