The Bookworm Artist
This weeks book is "Priceless: How I went Undercover to Rescue the World’s Stolen Treasures" written by Robert K. Wittman and John Shiffman"
This is a book for those who loves Adventure, Spy, Detective Novels. I am one of them. This is also non-fiction, since it was written by an FBI Agent. Robert K. Wittman worked at the Philadelphia Field Division from 1988 - 2008. He received special training in art, art history, antiques, jewelry and gems. He played an important role in the creation of ACT (Art Crime Team). This book can be seen as a memoir. He has a Security Company called ROBERT WITTMAN INC. You can do an Art Crime Investigation Seminar with his Company. He has been covered by the news on several occasions. Above is a video where he has an interview on Gooday Philadelphia, for this novel.
Next week something more serious and intellectual...
