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 history’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 circumstances—and leaves behind clues to a secret he kept his entire life . . . a secret about something called the Amber Room.

Desperate to know the truth about her father’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 they’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 history itself.

A brilliant adventure and a scintillating tale of intrigue, deception, art, and murder, The Amber Room is a classic tale of suspense—and the debut of a strong new voice in the world of the international thriller.

    " It was a decent book. I did not particularly like either of the heros. And the fact that they got divorced but still loved each other and then got back together really rubs me the wrong way. Divorce is not OK. Other than the heros being some lame lawy "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 4/21/2011

    " I have read several of Steve Berry's books. This is apparently his first one. I really enjoyed it. "

    " Tried to be like The DaVinci Code but failed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark | 4/5/2011

    " Although I have read some pretty mediocre reviews, this was a pretty decent debut novel in the thriller genre. Just the right blend of historical backdrop combined with suspense. Some parts could have been a bit cleaner, but the bottom line is that it kept me up late. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Matthew | 4/4/2011

    " I picked this book up because of its title. The writing is crap, full of trite Russian-observed shit, and prevented me from enjoying what should have been a fun tale of theft and Soviet-German intrigue. As a side note, why does the picture of the authors in this book make them look tortured? "

    " I like how Berry takes historical facts and weaves them into an entertaining story. I learn a little but am entertained as well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 3/24/2011

    " recommended by Candi Prizer. I loved this book as I have visited the Amber Room at the Catherine's Palace, St. Petersburg. The walls are truly amazing as sheets of amber make up a wall. I also learned that amber can be heated up and moulded into different shapes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea | 3/7/2011

    " Great history/ thriller. Definately worth a read if you dig history, especially art. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marita | 2/16/2011

    " Very similar to Cotton Malone books, but rougher with more expletives. Not a bad tale if you like historical mysteries. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Holly | 2/6/2011

    " I loved it...I'm addicted to this writer thanks to my friend, Simon! "
