Art theft is one of the most profitable criminal enterprises in the world, exceeding $6 billion dollars in losses to galleries and art collectors annually. In "Stealing Rembrandts," authors Anthony M. Amore and Tom Mashberg reveal the actors behind the major art heists of the Dutch Master in the last century. Through thefts around the world?from Stockholm to Boston, Worcester to Ohio?the authors track daring entries into and escapes from the world?s most renowned museums, and robbers who coolly walk off with multimillion dollar paintings. "Stealing Rembrandts" is a dramatic and brilliant account that lets you peek into the alluring and little-known criminal art world.
