Arabic books that 'Ulama may refer to for fabricated Hadiths

What is a good book on the compilation of fabricated (mawdu’) Hadiths?

I am aware of Al-Mawḍū‘āt al-Kubra but i have read from ‘Ulama that many Hadiths are in that book are not really fabrications.

Is there any reliable book which discusses fabricated (mawdu’) Hadiths preferably by Shaykh Muhammad Awamah?
