While I loved the story being told it should be noted that this does not ring like the work of a journalist or an historian, but instead is rife with opinion and humor. While it does make good story-telling, I found myself wondering where these facts came from, and offended by the judgment the author puts on the "main character" without, it seems, the facts to base it on. I am sad to say there are probably other better books on the theft of the Mona Lisa.

This is a great book recounting the theft of the Mona Lisa in 1911. It is quite a fascinating story, and goes into detail about the forgeries created to make the buyers think they had the real deal. A great read! I would highly recommend.

This is a fantastic read about how the Mona Lisa was stolen and missing from 1911 to 1914. Famous screen writer William Goldman recommends it to readers in his book "Which Lie Did I Tell? More Adventures in the Screen Trade." Does not disappoint. Reads like a good heist thriller.

Keeps your attention, which these days (by comparison) is enough.
