Some brief overview of this book

_25E2_2580_259CBegs to be made into a movie. A true-crime tale that includes a priceless Vermeer sto0E5175143C

—David Walton, The Plain Dealer

Famous paintings. A notorious thief. Cunning cops. And a troubled Irish history.

In the annals of fine art theft, no case has matched—for sheer criminal panache—the heist at Russborough in 1986. The Irish police knew right away that the mastermind was a brazen Dublin gangster named Martin Cahill. Yet the great plunder—including a Goya and a Vermeer—remained at large for years until the challenge of disposing of such famous works forced Cahill to reach outside the mob and into the international arena. When he did, his pursuers were waiting.

With the storytelling skill of a novelist and the nose of a detective, Matthew Hart follows the twists and turns of this celebrated case.

Good To Know

In our interview, Hart revealed some interesting facts about himself: My first car was a black MG Sprite with bugeye headlights. My girlfriend said she liked getting in and out of it more than she liked driving around in it. Our romance quickly fell apart and a Vermeer—remained at large for years until the challenge of disposing of such famous works forced Cahill to reach outside the mob and into the international arena. When he did, his pursuers were waiting.

With the storytelling skill of a novelist and the nose of a detective, Matthew Hart follows the twists and turns of this celebrated case.
