Wednesday, January 17, 2024

A riveting story of art, crime, love, and an insatiable hunger to possess beauty at any cost, told by author Michael Finkel.

Carrying out more than 200 heists over nearly eight years—in museums and cathedrals all over Europe—master thief Stéphane Breitwieser, along with his girlfriend who worked as his lookout, stole more than 300 objects, until it all fell apart in spectacular fashion.
