Rembrandt Sings: A Tale of Forgery, Deceit, Sex And, Quite Possibly, Murderby Michael Johnston
Ambitious art historian Bill Maguire searches Paris for a subject for his doctoral thesis and follows up faint clues about once famous abstract painter Alexander Golden. He fi nds himself in Carmel listening to the death-bed confessions of Joe Rembrandt, an art forger on an industrial scale, and meets beautiful Anna Glover whose life seems somehow connected with the dying man. But when Anna's lawyer boss completely debunks Rembrandt's story,
he decides it's time to get out and write his thesis. Unable, however,
to get out of his mind Joe's assertion that he found where Golden disappeared to with his mistress and a cache of his never-beforeseen canvases that could be worth millions, Bill searches around
Arles for Golden's farmhouse hideaway that probably never existed outside Rembrandt's imagination. He fi nds Anna there before him and hears yet another version of Joe's story. Together, they make the discovery that adds love, greed, insanity, academic dishonesty and very likely murder into the mix before leading to a completely unforeseen outcome.

Bill Maguire was looking for information for his thesis on the painter Alexander Golden. On his search for answers he ran into the ill painter Joe Rembrandt. Joe retells the story of his life, loves, and deception but most of all his love of art. It was in these stories that Bill started to realize he was in search for gold(en). Just when Bill had all the answers, he met with the dying man’s lawyer who turned things upside down. This trend of surprises continued in the book and at every turn we learned more information. I enjoyed book. I could not put it down once I picked it up. Even though the book revolved around art, anyone could enjoy reading this book. I would and have already recommended this book to others.
