"Jackson has written an accessible book that takes the reader on a journey into the world of art and crime and women. ... It is evident that Jackson has a real love of art and the overriding message for me was the need to protect and look after all art so that future generations can experience these marvellous works." (ARCA, November 8, 2019)
"The author achieves bringing her results and insights to a broad readership that do not require to possess previous knowledge in the field of cultural heritage crime. And even though the book is not written from a criminological point of view, it makes a compelling case for further avenues of research into the gender perspective of cultural heritage crime that are more empirical and exploratory by nature. For sure, these future studies will have as a reference Jackson's pioneering study." (Marc Balcells, Journal of Art Crime, Issue 22, Fall, 2019)
