Master Thieves

by Stephen Kurkjian


In Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, 13 empty frames mark the places of the paintings that were stolen in an infamous 1990 robbery. They included masterpieces by Degas, Rembrandt, and Vermeer worth, in total, $500 million, and they remain missing. Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Kurkjian, of the Boston Globe, pursues the story of the heist with the doggedness of a hard-bitten gumshoe. Declaring the theft Boston's "last, best secret," he delves deeply into the scene of the crime, the beleaguered FBI investigation, and the 1980s war between two of Boston's major criminal gangs, the Salemme and Russo/Ferrara clans. Introducing a cast of colorful underworld characters, including the notorious Whitey Bulger, Kurkjian paints a picture of citywide corruption and decades of power struggle between opposing Mob bosses and their soldiers. Conducting new interviews with many of those allegedly involved in the case, the author advances compelling new theories about the robbery that will set true-crime enthusiasts and armchair detectives on the trail of these art treasures. - from Booklist
