Set in Amsterdam, Counterfeit features a strong female protagonist in Kendra Cooper who finds herself a suspect in painting counterfeit art. The book begins with Dr. Richard Reed working with Interpol to catch a counterfeit art ring. I learned more about the art world and several European countries through this suspenseful book. I enjoyed Counterfeit and recommend it to others. I received my e-book from the author through Book Fun. This is my honest opinion.
What a fascinating book! This book contained an intriguing look into the world of counterfeit art. I enjoyed following the investigation, and I learned a surprising number of things. For instance, I didn’t realize that a criminal could be identified by photographs of his ears or that paintings could be x-rayed to confirm authenticity. Who knew? Throughout this book, the author sprinkled information about famous artists and their paintings. By the end of the story, I felt as if I’d had a crash course in art history. It was obvious that this book had been extremely well researched. I also enjoyed the book’s exotic locations and the in-depth descriptions of the settings. In fact, this book made me feel as if I’d been on vacation. Perhaps the thing that I enjoyed most about this story was the fact that there were beautiful moments of tenderness and breathtaking pages full of action. I enjoyed this book, and I actually felt as if I learned a few things too!
