The memoir recounts Wittman’s 20-year stint as the FBI’s resident art theft expert. during which time he recovered more than $200 million in stolen images, including paintings by Rembrandt, Monet and Picasso, the golden armor of an ancient Peruvian warrior king and the headdress Geronimo wore at his final pow-wow. GK Films is already seeking a writer for the film adaptation, on which Wittman will be involved as a consultant. The book is already on the New York Times Bestseller List.
