Are we born with artistic talent or

is it something we develop?

These questions are hard for any artist to answer. But for architect Mark Reed, they’re even harder.

After being hit by a truck, Reed awakens to a newfound talent and is thrust into a deep obsession with painting. The work he produces is strikingly similar to that of Vincent van Gogh, and as a result, the market for Van Gogh paintings drops significantly.

As rumors circulate that Reed is the reincarnation of Van Gogh, he begins to question the ownership of his incredible talent—and so does everyone else. Fraud accusations ensue, followed by a trial. Then the real chaos begins.

Fitting Sequel

This is a fitting sequel to author’s first book, “The Reincarnation of Vincent Van Gogh.” With excellent character development, Forst captures the tension and pace of the first novel in this gripping follow-up. Best to describe this novel as one that once started, you simply cannot put it down.

Excellent story line and presentation

Excellent story line and presentation. Loved the phasing and two part plot from gripping trial to sweet revenge. Best overall page turner out of the last 100 books I have read this year.

A Little Bit of Everything

This book got my attention just from the summary on the back cover and kept it all the way until the end. The writing was incredibly detailed and descriptive, but done correctly in that it built the characters and the aura of certain locations just enough to suck the reader in. The book’s pace remained … Read More

Most intriguing

I enjoyed this book from start to finish. The theme of ” early” talent or reincarnation on art or music is most intriguing, since we read about children from time to time with extraordinary talent at an early age–Then the author adds the excitement of the chase with a most appropriate ending for all. All … Read More

Fascinating plot, page-turner pace, creative story-telling, dimensional character development, crisp dialogue, and exceptional writing style and imagery. All in all, a … Read More

This is definitely a fun read

This is definitely a fun read and I am partial to reincarnation/time travel and such. The idea of our hero, a bored but successful architect being knocked out in a car accident and then discovering incredible artistic impressionistic type talent was very appealing. And one can learn a lot, repeat a lot, about any historical … Read More
