    Art and Crime and Intrigue

    Anthony M Amore and Tom Mashberg have compiled a history of art theft that is as entertaining as it is astonishing. Amore is the security director for the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston - the location where 13 art works including two Rembrandt paintings and an etching caused an uproar in 1990: Mashberg is the investigative reporter and Sunday editor of the Boston Herald. These two gentlemen have as much intelligent information about the psychology and perpetration of art heists as anyone writing today and much of that information is form first hand experience.

    The title, STEALING REMBRANDTS, suggests that the information shared will be about he works of the great artist alone, but the book is actually a dissection of the history of art heists throughout the world. It is well documented and full of theory and fact that provides some of the more entertaining reading in art books available today. The In many ways this is a crime thriller rather than a documentation of thefts, but that is what makes the book not only informative but also an exciting read. The complexities and the faux pas of art theft are mind-boggling, and Amore and Mashberg play it to the hilt!
