Stealing the Show: A History of Art and Crime in Six Thefts by John Barelli
Every now and then, the Crocker’s Book Club likes to sink its teeth into a mystery, and Stealing the Show has it all. The former security chief of New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art, John Barelli, bares all in this fascinating look at the crimes that occurred on his watch; the thieves who made vital mistakes, tales of recovered artwork, and a few mysteries that have never been solved. He takes readers behind the scenes at the Met and shares what it's like to get the call that an ancient masterpiece has gone missing.
