Long Description
The spellbinding new novel from the award-winning author of The Caprices and A Carnivore’s Inquiry transports us to a mysterious world of deception, political intrigue, and desire. In the summer of 1963, American Rupert Brigg travels to Greece to collect classical pieces for his Uncle William’s art collection. Rupert’s first discovery, however, is that Athens is a shadowy place that hides a tangle of fork-tongued diplomacy and duplicitous women, a city of replicas and composites that, like a hall of mirrors, calls to question what is real and what is false. Journeying to the secluded island of Aspros, among a circle of artists and aristocrats, each with their own secrets, Rupert finds the very pieces he’s searching for, but can he escape the tragedy that ended his brief marriage? As beautiful as Rupert’s discoveries are, beneath the surface lurk rumors of insurrection, fabrication, and even murder. Seductive, compelling, and sly, Forgery is a sophisticated book about the value and meaning of art, love, and the corrosive power of grief.

The "Quit Application" menu item wasn't working so that got fixed. On the scan results screen, the quit menu item was only returning you to the startup screen. Now it actually quits. We also changed the label for that menu item from "Quit / Exit" to "Quit Application" to be more clear.

We added the ability to "Share" scanned data. If you can something and we can bring you to a product page, when you share you will be sharing a link to the product page. When you scan something and we don't know what to do with it (not a product barcode) we let you share the raw scan.
