Summary:
On March 18, 1990, two men dressed as policemen broke into Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and walked out with a dozen masterpieces worth $500 million. To date, not one painting has been recovered. Before he died, Harold Smith, one of the world's greatest art detectives, believed he was close to cracking the case. After Smith's family gave journalist Ulrich Boser access to his research, Boser explored Smith's unfinished leads.
