Description

"Boser cracks the cold case of the art world's greatest unsolved mystery."—Vanity Fair

"The True Story of the World's Largest Unsolved Art Theft," The Gardner Heist by Ulrich Boser is a fascinating account of a brazen and amazing criminal act—a book that could help police and investigators solve the mystery of the 1990 break-in and burglary at Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. "A tantalizing whodunit" (Boston Globe) and a "riveting, wonderfully vivid account [that] takes you into the underworld of obsessed art detectives, con men, and thieves" (Jonathan Harr, author of The Lost Painting), The Gardner Heist is true crime history at its most spellbinding.
