Two men disguised as Boston Police officers trick their way into the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum after midnight, tie up the two night watchmen and make off with an estimated half billion dollars’ worth of artwork.
Now 25 years later, the principal reporter on the case for The Boston Globe for years, Stephen Kurkjian, has written a gripping account of the still-unsolved heist. Autographed copies of the book will be available for purchase.
