Art theft is almost as old as art itself, and even the most security-conscious galleries can fall victim to it. Sandy Nairne was Director of Programmes at the Tate when two of its Turners, estimated worth £24 million, were stolen while on loan to an exhibition in Frankfurt. In this compelling real-life detective story, he describes the cloak-and-dagger negotiations that led to their return, before discussing the broader issues of value, ethics, and the mysterious figure of the criminal collector.
