Charles Belfoure

Charles Belfoure has combined two seemingly disparate occupations—author and architect—into one successful career. His focus on historical architecture and its preservation is part of everything he does, both in writing nonfiction and fiction and, of course, in his work as an architect. Belfoure’s first books were architectural histories, which he either authored or coauthored: The Baltimore Rowhouse (2001), Edmund Lind: Anglo-American Architect of Baltimore and the South (2009), and Monuments to Money: The Architecture of American Banks (2011), among others. He published his first novel, The Paris Architect, in 2013. The book was a finalist for the 2015 International Dublin Literary Award, and Booklist called him “an up-and-coming Ken Follet.” Publishers Weekly called his next book, House of Thieves (2015), a “most memorable, evocative read” in their starred review. His latest book is The Fallen Architect.
