"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"-- Provided by publisher.

If you enjoy art and art history this may interest you, but if you're looking to read about fascinating art heists you'll be disappointed. This book is about debunking the common view of art thieves as portrayed in works of fiction. Instead of grand plans and fancy gadgetry, most art thieves appear to be no more sophisticated than the common shoplifter.
