The Perfect Fake

(2006)
A novel by

 
 
In New York Times bestselling author Barbara Parker's brilliant new stand-alone novel, the forgery of a rare five-hundred-year-old map sparks a thrilling chase from Miami to London and the Italian Alps in a remarkable tale of international intrigue.

Tom Fairchild is a man with a past he can't shake. He's struggling to make it as a graphic artist, but his probation officer thinks he belongs in jail. When millionaire Miami real estate developer Stuart Barlowe offers him $50,000 to travel to Italy to duplicate a rare Renaissance map, Tom sees a way to solve his problems. The only catch is that Barlowe's daughter, Allison, a map expert herself, has to supervise the project. Allison and Tom fell in love as teenagers, but that was twelve years ago, and now Allison thinks Tom is lying. There's no way he can make a perfect copy.

Tom soon suspects that Barlowe wants a forgery, not a duplicate. He just doesn't know why, and Allison isn't talking. When people start turning up dead, and Tom and Allison realize they are being tailed by two men--one a ruthless hit man and the other a rogue government agent--it quickly becomes clear that they have no one to trust but each other.
