Summary

Summary

The Mona Lisa is stolen from the Louvre, but people still line up to see the spot where it used to hang. Diamond thieves steal millions of dollars' worth of jewels, but how do they sell them for cash? How do some heists succeed, and what happens when they go very wrong? The art of high-stakes theft has been popular in the media and the movies. In Heists, part of Full Tilt's Origins: Whodunnit series, readers will learn how different types of heists began. Through timelines, fun facts, and true stories, students will discover the truth behind glamorized crime.
