STEALING THE SHOW A History of Art and Crime in Six Thefts

by | Read by Mack Sanderson

Biography & Memoir • 5.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

With his deep, authoritative voice, Mack Sanderson is the perfect narrator for this memoir by the former chief security officer of New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. He is so believable that at times listeners may believe they're hearing the author himself as he recounts his experiences on the job. While primarily about the theft of paintings, precious objects, tapestries, and baseball cards, the audiobook also discusses the difficulties of securing a large institution from acts of terrorism. Sanderson takes us into the world of the curators who are responsible for priceless collections such as the renowned King Tut exhibition. Listeners will learn much about the psychology of the art thief--whether art lover, opportunist, or professional. J.E.S. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2019]
