Below are a few reviews of Clay's newly released novel and you can read more at  The Forger's Forgery. 

'Perhaps one reason why The Forger's Forgery is a complex mystery and yet realistic, is that it's based on the true story of master forger Han van Meegeren, who forged the works of some Dutch masters in the 1930s and ’40s in a notorious crime that was clever, unprecedented, and difficult to solve.' 

D. Donovan, Sr. Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

"The Forger’s Forgery … was a great read, cleverly constructed, very entertaining, exciting and humoristic.” 

Friso Lammertse, author Van Meegeren’s Vermeers
