Did you know that The Shroud of Turin, the most famous religious artifact in history, was really created over 1,000 years after Christ? Or that the famous Figure of the Sleeping Cupid by Michelangelo, adored by art lovers the world over, is almost certainly a forgery? Find the truth behind these and dozens of the other most ingenious "fakes" ever created in Brian Innes"s incredible new book Fakes & Forgeries. Drawing on his years of research studying criminals and con-men from around the globe, Innes exposes the most famous cases of religious, historical, and art scams ever perpetrated. From the forgery of over 25 million Bank of England notes by SS Major Bernhard Kruger to Mark Hoffman"s audacious "discovery" of the sacred Mormon text, the Oath of a Freeman, from con-men such as Albert Abrams who duped millions of Americans for decades with expensive but useless (and often dangerous) health remedies to the shocking truth behind Clifford Irving"s fraudulent "diaries" of reclusive billionaire Howard Hughes--this amazing true-crime book has them all. Illustrated with over 200 rare color and black and white photos and drawings, Fakes & Forgeries not only tells us the full story behind each case and its significance on the world stage, but also explains how these master thieves plied their craft to fool even the greatest experts. With the thrilling suspense of a mystery novel, Fakes & Forgeries leads us through the exciting and informative world of forgery as never before.
