Without giving away too much of the story in my latest novel, When Men Betray, I did a lot of research on looting and the sale of stolen antiquities for the novel. The sale of looted antiquities is a three billion dollar a year industry worldwide with large sums finding their way into the hands of terrorists like ISIS. Unfortunately, a lot of this art finds a home in the U.S. and Europe. That’s right, art collectors and museums buy stolen antiquities and are indirectly funding murder and torture. Let’s hope the current administration is being aggressive with the purchasers of stolen art for the sake of the art and more importantly for the humans who are the ultimate victims of such an outrageous enterprise.
