Caveat Emptor

The Secret Life of an American Art Forger
Written by Ken Perenyi | Narrated by Dan Butler
“Astonishing… By turns horrifying and hilarious” (The Wall Street Journal): After years of being concealed in confidential FBI files, the true story of America’s greatest art forger unfolds through the confessions of the artist and master thief himself. This captivating audiobook features a “superb performance” (AudioFile).


The true story of America’s greatest art forger! Ten years ago, an FBI investigation was about to expose a scandal in the art world that would have been front-page news in New York and London. After a trail of fake paintings of astonishing quality led federal agents to art dealers, renowned experts, and the major auction houses, the investigation inexplicably ended, despite an abundance of evidence collected. The case was closed and the FBI file was marked “exempt from public disclosure.” Now that the statute of limitations on these crimes has expired and the case appears hermetically sealed shut by the FBI, this audiobook, Caveat Emptor, is that artist Ken Perenyi’s confession. It is the story, in detail, of how he pulled it all off. Unlike other forgers, Perenyi produced no paper trail, no fake provenance whatsoever; he let the paintings speak for themselves. And that they did, routinely mesmerizing the experts in mere seconds.
