Summary
It was a legendary room -- an ensemble of precious eighteenth-century wall panels that graced a tsarist palace in St. Petersburg. Then it was stolen by Nazi invaders and carried off to a castle in East Prussia. Called by some the "eighth wonder of the world," the treasure was last seen in 1945 during the chaotic scramble of men and borders during the end of World War II. Official statements concluded the Amber Room was destroyed by the ravages of fire, like so much of Europe's art and antiques during the war. The case was closed. But while the East Germans sang freedom songs before the Stasi headquarters in Leipzig, one man was desperately searching through old Communist files for anything appearing the least bit important. Little did he know that one of the stolen files would contain a forty-seven-year-old document which could possibly reopen the door to the Amber Room. From their high-priced London antique shop, Alexander Kantor and his assistant Jeffrey Sinclair have made deep contacts into the secret treasure troves of Europe, particularly the former Eastern Bloc nations. With the disappearance of a medieval chalice that carries an unexpected secret, they are pulled into a trail of intrigue and cover-ups that surround the Amber Room
