The Use of Reason
Part of the "Mothers and Sons" collection, this book tells the story of a small time criminal who finds himself in too deep by stealing not just cash or jewellery - easy to take, easy to get rid of quickly - but four extremely valuable paintings. How do you quickly get rid of a Rembrandt, Gainborough and two Guard's without getting caught?
