Summary
In August 2003, two men snatched a painting by Leonardo da Vinci, Madonna with the Yarnwinder, during a tour of the Scottish castle where it hung. London-based writer and journalist Hart recounts the crime and the response of law enforcement agencies. The whole affair reveals how nearly priceless art is not sold on the black market but used as collateral, solved the related case of a Vermeer stolen twice, and destroyed the legendary criminal Martin Cahill.
