Forty-five years after WWII, in an odyssey that stretched from the New York art world, to the quaint medieval town of Quedlinburg in central Germany, to a desolate Texas ghost town, Honan uncovered the clues that cracked the biggest and longest unsolved art theft of the century. Now he tells the complete story of how he tracked the thief--a compulsive kleptomaniac American G. I. --along a trail that had grown cold after almost half a century, leading him to the lost art in a small Texas farm town. It is a detective story filled with thrills, chills and laughs; a real-life mystery about the desperate search for the lost treasure, and the scores of art dealers, collectors, lawyers and officials all too easily corrupted by contact with it. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 289 pages; 25018
