The Late Artist Studied By Spies

Mark Lombardi was an artist, to be sure, but what else was he?  Before his death, he made intricate drawings that told stories of banking and organized crime and intelligence agencies. 

The FBI and CIA both studied his work. 

With that backdrop, more than a few people doubt that Lombardi's death in March 2000 was a suicide. 

His story is told at length in the book Interlock: Art, Conspiracy, and the Shadow Worlds of Mark Lombardi

Playwright and author Patricia Goldstone visits with details of the work.
