內容簡介

結合浩瀚歷史中的一隅,透過作者的神筆,讓這段不起眼的歷史,閃耀亮眼,吸引人。充滿探索的樂趣。── 邁阿密先驅報。

驕傲自大的自戀狂,以為所向披靡,卻狠狠地摔了一大跤……失去一切。── Publishers Weekly。

E. Forbes曾經是受人景仰的古董地圖,直到他2005年在耶魯大學圖書館行竊被逮個正著,從可敬的古董商到惡名昭彰的階下囚,揭開一連串不為人知的祕密,也讓世人得以窺探這神秘古董行業的秘辛。

廣受讚譽的記者Michael Blanding,將他敏銳的新聞專業發揮得淋漓盡致,是第一位深度採訪E. Forbes,這位總是帶著笑容的竊圖者,自認是探險家,罪行背後所隱藏的真相,一樁樁竊盜案所牽扯出巨大的財富與大富豪之間又有甚麼關連?作者拼湊出高風險犯罪下讓人無法自拔的貪戀,梳理出毀滅與救贖的故事,精彩絕倫,引人入勝。

Once considered a respectable rare-map dealer, E. Forbes Smiley made millions and was highly esteemed for his knowledge; until he was arrested for slipping maps out of books in the Yale University library. Though pieces of the story have been told before, Blanding is the first reporter to gain access to Smiley himself after he'd gone silent. Although Smiley swears he has admitted to all of the maps he stole, libraries claim he stole hundreds more, and offer evidence to prove it. Using interviews, Blanding teases out the tale of deception.
