The Woman Who Stole Vermeer: The True Story of Rose Dugdale and the Russborough House Art Heist by Anthony M. Amore

I think the risk that you will ever again commit burglary or any dishonesty is extremely remote.
—Judge Sir Hugh Park,
at the sentencing of Rose Dugdale, in October 1973, following the theft of artworks and silver from her parents’ home

If you were to tell the story of a wealthy young Englishwoman who derided her parents in court for being monsters but freely spent her $200,000 annual trust fund abetting Irish revolutionaries, who brazenly burglarized her family estate, and who less than a year later made a more daring art heist—this one in Ireland, including one of only two Vermeer paintings remaining in private hands—you might be called full of blarney. And yet this tale about Rose Dugdale, though delicious catnip, is all true.
