CBS This Morning

Day two of my 2014 tour began at CBS This Morning, where I had a wonderful time talking about The Heist and some real life art theft. Full video is now available here:


Morning Joe — The Heist

Day three of my tour began with MSNBC’s Morning Joe. We had a good time talking about my author photo, then turned to the more serious topics of the Syrian civil war, the Arab Spring, and the mechanics of real-life art theft. Watch all the way to the end to find out what kind of art Joe Scarborough has up on his walls at home.


Today Show — The Heist

The on sale date for The Heist has finally arrived! The first stop on my 2014 media tour was NBC’s Today show. I got the chance to talk about the book, my own theory for what really happened to the painting at the center of it, the possibility of an Gabriel Allon movie, and my summer reading picks. Watch the full interview here:


Good Day New York — The Heist

New York’s Good Day Book Club featured The Heist this week. I had a great time talking about the missing Caravaggio that inspired part of the story and my research and writing process.
