The Gardner Heist: A True Story of the World’s Largest Unsolved Art Theft, by Ulrich Boser

An interesting recap of the attempts over the last twenty years to recover the paintings stolen from Boston’s Gardner museum. The author devoted several years to hunting down leads and interviewing people who claimed to have knowledge of the crime. There are also chapters about Isabella Stewart Gardner, the specific artists and the paintings that were taken as well as several chapters about the late Harold Smith who also investigated the theft. The saddest part–since March 1990, when they were taken, not one of the pieces has been seen.
