Product Description

Product Description

In this thrilling collection of True Crime stories, critically acclaimed author Simon Worrall takes us on a wild ride into the high-octane world of art thieves and the undercover detectives who hunt them. Shifting from the USA to France, Stockholm to Panama, with stops along the way in London and Buenos Aires, these tautly constructed stories put the reader inside a world of sting operations and wire taps, as we follow the trail of a stolen Rembrandt from Sweden to Florida; or a Cezanne from Massachusetts to Panama. On the way, we meet a fascinating cast of characters: broken-hearted collectors and disreputable auction house experts; gun-toting thugs and heroic cops.
" A fascinating peek through the keyhole into the deadly, secret world of art theft. A True Crime stand-out!" ( Heather Dune Macadam, Author of Rena's Promise: A Story of Two Sisters in Auschwitz)

HASH(0xa3d858a0) out of 5 stars Factually interesting March 20 2012

While the facts are interesting, the storytelling is thin. Nevertheless, if art theft is of interest to the reader they will likely get something out of this book.
