Review: Stolen Masterpiece Tracker: The Dangerous Life of the FBI's #1 Art Sleuth

User Review  - Eric Armusik - Goodreads

A compelling story about a masterpiece recovery division of the FBI. The stories are so incredible and the different ways Thomas went about recovering each of them are so entertaining. Brilliant book. I don't know who is more naive, the criminals or the justice system prosecuting them. Read full review
