Based on the largest robbery in history at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, THE MUSEUM HEIST weaves a tale of art stretching from classical Greece to modern abstractions. Through the miracle of fiction, a disgraced classical scholar who calls himself Paris finds the stolen art but not the thieves. The earthy police Lieutenant Lowell is called to solve the mystery. Paris, who had done time for art forgery, wants to use the reward money to start his own museum of antiquity. Attempting to imitate the fabled adventurer Odysseus, he and Lowell work as a complementary pair of eccentrics, using Paris’ ability to create phony art and Lowell’s interest in digestion to solve the crime.
A rewarding and fulfilling mystery. Anyone who loves art and romance will savor every word.
