Staff Reviews


A well research and very entertaining account of the 1990's St. Patrick's Day robbery at Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Boser interviewed the late "art detective" Harold Smith who became obsessed with the crime, and he continues the investigation. — Sarah Knight

Boser carefully interviews everyone from the only FBI agent on the case to all the unsavory characters seemingly associated with the theft, which included a Vermeer and Rembrandt's only maritime painting, and he has his suspicions. Here's fact that reads like fiction. — Louise Jones

Description


One museum, two thieves, and the Boston underworld--this account tells the true story behind the lost Gardner masterpieces and the art detectives who swore to get them back. b&w illustrations throughout.
