Story of FBI agent who makes career of retrieving stolen works of art and, sometimes arresting the thieves or dealers. I love art and enjoy crime stories. There have been several books written about stolen art that were very engaging, Priceless is only so-so. While I find the author likable and he's had a fascinating career, the book lacks drama and suspense. Each chapter tells story of one case, and the writer will tell you that the situation was risky and dangerous but never conveys those feelings to the reader.

This book is good for times when you need a book you can pick up and put down often, because there are only a few characters to follow and each chapter is independent of others. Very easy read. Recommended for people who follow art and wonder whatever happened to those Rembrandts stolen in 1990 from the Gardner Museum in Boston.
