The forger and the thief is a historical mystery story about five strangers who, each to their own, are entangled in the forger’s wicked web and have an agenda and a part to play in the story.
The beautiful story is set in Florence, 1966. The pace of the story is steady but keeps you intrigued. Florence is described beautifully, and the five strangers present individuality to the story. I wasn’t sure how they all meshed together since they each had such varied backstory. However, I believe this added more mystery to the story.
What did pull the story together was the characterization. The narrative kept changing, and that may confuse some, but altogether was an enjoyable read. It was apparent the author had done her research as the story was historically correct. This enriched the storyline, and I appreciated that.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes to read historical stories with the added adventure and even horror.Tweet
