9780451412454: The Perfect Fake

Artist Tom Fairchild has a troubled past he can't shake. That's why he jumps at millionaire Stuart Barlowe's irresistible offer to travel to Italy and make an exact copy of a rare Renaissance map. Accompanied overseas by Barlowe's equally irresistible daughter, Allison, Tom suspects that what Barlowe wants is not a copy, but a forgery-and that he's prepared to kill to get it. As pawns in a reckless new game, Tom and Allison are running for their lives-while chasing the startling truth behind the mystery of the perfect fake.

About the Author:

Barbara Parker (1947-2009) was the author of thirteen mysteries, including the Suspicion series featuring Miami lawyers Anthony Quintana and Gail Connor. Her debut, Suspicion of Innocence, was a finalist for the Edgar Award for Best First Novel. She also penned four stand-alone thrillers, including The Dark of Day and The Perfect Fake.



Paul Michael Garcia, an AudioFile Earphones Award winner and former company member of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, received his classical training in theater from Southern Oregon University, where he worked as an actor, director, and designer.

From Booklist:

In a departure from her Gail Connor series, Parker writes an engrossing stand-alone thriller. Tom Fairchild is determined to get his life back in order after spending time in prison for theft. Now on parole, Tom, a would-be graphic artist, is working with his sister at her map shop in Miami. When real-estate developer Stuart Barlowe wants to hire Tom to make an exact copy of a Renaissance map, Tom sees a way of earning the money he needs to make restitution for his role in the theft. But does Barlowe really want a duplicate, or is he asking for a forgery? Either way, Tom agrees to being smuggled out of Florida to research the map in England and Italy. On the journey, romance is rekindled between Tom and his former girlfriend Allison, Barlowe's daughter. Naturally, there is much more to the map caper than meets the eye, and soon enough Tom and Allison are in the middle of it. Parker's villains are stereotypes, but Tom and Allison make a sympathetic couple on the run, and the cartography frame story is fresh and compelling. Sue O'Brien
