This was a fascinating read, sharing cultural and historical perspective on the Mona Lisa it's theft as well as the characters surrounding the art scene in Paris. Well worth the time as it is well researched, fast paced and enjoyable read. I love a book that gives me three or four more books to read, this has whetted my reading appetite.

I highly recommend this book. The 1911 theft of the Mona Lisa is a complicated story, but the authors of this book brought it to life.

While there is hardly anything new about the theft, some of the art history information is interesting. The reader is left with the question, "Is this a book about art theft or about art history?"

Although it shows Charney's full mastery in investigation and writing, it's not a page turner as the two oteros were. Good reading anyway!
