The Amber Room is one of the greatest treasures ever
made by man: an entire room forged of exquisite amber,
from its four massive walls to its finely crafted
furniture. But it is also the subject of one of historyâ€™s
most intriguing mysteries. Originally commissioned in 1701
by Frederick I of Prussia, the Room was later perfected
Tsarskoe Selo, the Russian imperial city. In 1941, German
troops invaded the Soviet Union, looting everything in
their wake and seizing the Amber Room. When the Allies
began the bombing of Germany in August 1944, the Room was
hidden. And despite the best efforts of treasure hunters
and art collectors from around the world, it has never
been seen again.
Now, two powerful men have set
their best operatives loose in pursuit, and the hunt has
begun once more. . . .
Life is good for Atlanta
judge Rachel Cutler. She loves her job, loves her kids,
and remains civil to her ex-husband, Paul. But everything
changes when her father, a man who survived the horrors of
World War II, dies under strange circumstancesâ€”and leaves
behind clues to a secret he kept his entire life . . . a
secret about something called the Amber
Desperate to know the truth about her
fatherâ€™s suspicious dealings, Rachel takes off for
Germany, with Paul close behind. Shortly after arriving,
they find themselves involved with a cast of shadowy
characters who all claim to share their quest. But as they
learn more about the history of the treasure they seek,
Rachel and Paul realize theyâ€™re in way over their heads.
Locked in a treacherous game with ruthless professional
killers and embroiled in a treasure hunt of epic
proportions, Rachel and Paul suddenly find themselves on a
collision course with the forces of power, evil, and
A brilliant adventure and a
scintillating tale of intrigue, deception, art, and
murder, The Amber Room is a classic tale of
suspenseâ€”and the debut of a strong new voice in the world
of the international thriller.
