I've finished "Priceless: How I Went Undercover To Rescue the World's Stolen Treasure" by Robert K. Wittman w/ John Shiffman (325pgs, 2010). An interesting look at the undercover work of an now retired FBI agent and his mission to recover stolen pieces of artwork and archeological treasures. Sadly his biggest case, trying to recover the works of art stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston in 1990, was messed up by bureaucracy and jealousies between law enforcement agencies.

A Game of Thrones (oh no, hooked on another fat book series!),


I just finished a reread of the whole series, in anticipation of the 5th book coming out this month. Good luck on your new addiction :)
