"The Art Forger" by B.A. Shapiro
B.A. Shapiro has written a page-turning thriller about stolen art and masterful fakes in her debut novel The Art Forger, using one of the world's most notorious unsolved art crimes as a backdrop.
Two robbers in 1990 got away with 13 masterworks from Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, tying up guards and escaping with works by artists that included Vermeer, Rembrandt and Degas. More than 20 years later: No arrests, no art.
B. A. Shapiro lives in Boston and teaches fiction writing at Northeastern University.
