The Times of London calls Robert Wittman "the most famous art detective in the world." During his 20-year career with the FBI, Wittman recovered more than 225 million dollars in stolen art and antiquities.

Joan Cartan-Hansen talks with Robert Wittman about what it is like to go undercover to reclaim a stolen Rembrandt or a priceless piece of American history. Wittman discusses founding the FBI's Art Crime Team and recounts stories from his memoir, Priceless: How I went Undercover to Rescue the World's Stolen Treasures.
