review 1: "The True Story of the World's Largest Unsolved Art Theft." March, 1990, two men entered the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, MA and stole 12 masterpieces. Works by Degas, Rembrandt and Vermeer have never been recovered. This author, Ulrich Boser, took up the search but was unable to find any of the artwork. Interesting to hear about the "art underworld" but not "A Tantalizing Whodunit," that the Boston Globe stated.
review 2: A host of colourful characters, international intrigue, world weary sleuths, the urbane reality behind art theft, theory on theory - all nicely woven together in a page turning read which despite the obvious fact that the paintings are still 'at large' did not disappoint at the end. I can see how such a case takes over people
... more and that the tantalising prospect of unearthing that one final clue to crack the case is like a drug, and he gets across the passion and tells the story well less

Very interesting true story of the art heist of the Gardner Museum in Boston. Highly recommend!
Mildly interesting book about a wildly interesting art heist that remains unsolved to this day.
Obviously, it would have been more satisfying if the mystery was solved.
Where is it all?
