The Rescue Artist by Edward Dolnick

This book is a pretty delightful read. The main fault with the story is that the author tries too hard to get into the main character's head (real life Scotland Yard Art Squad sleuth Charley hill) and his attempts to do so come off like he's just trying to hard. The 1994 theft of the Scream is the anchor throughout the story and that could have been enough for a solid novella but the other tales of masterpiece thefts that the author researched and wrote well, make the book a page-turning survey of art crime.
A fun read!
