For Art Crime Lovers

March was full of author panels! Many of the people who came to the panels were aspiring writers. Invariably, one of the questions is how do we research for our mystery writing.

So, I thought I would share with you some of the places I go to find out about art crime. Here are a few of my faves.

The FBI Art Squad and their list of the Top Ten Art Crimes

Interpol’s art site, with their own Most Wanted List!

For updates on thefts, forgery, and antiquities trade, plus plenty of resources regarding forgery and theft, the Museum Security network can’t be beat this.

Lots of information about art crimes, forensic art, illegal antiquities trade here.

Let me know if you turn up anything I should include in book FOUR!
