'There's a rush to it, an elevation of the senses. . . . It's a sweet feeling, one I'll never get tired of, not on my twentieth heist, or my fiftieth, or my hundredth.'

Once a promising young rock musician, the son of a decorated policeman, Myles Connor became one of Boston's most notorious criminals - a legendary art thief with irresistible charm and a genius IQ whose approach to his chosen profession mixed brilliant tactical planning with stunning bravado, brazen disguises, audaciously elaborate con jobs, and even the broad-daylight grab-and-dash. New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Smithsonian Institution, Boston's Museum of Fine Art . . .no museum was off-limits. The fact that he was in jail at the time of the largest art theft in American history - the still-unsolved robbery of the Isabella Stewart Gardener Museum - has not stopped the FBI from considering him a prime suspect. Optioned for film by the Oscar-winning screenwriter and director William Monahan (The Departed), The Art of the Heist is Connor's story - part confession, part thrill ride, and impossible to put down.
