THE AMBER ROOM – G
Berry, Steve – 1st book
When Judge Rachel Cutler's father dies under suspicious circumstances, he leaves his daughter tantalizing clues to a decades-old secret: the Amber Room, an exquisite treasure that, so the legend goes, was appropriated by the Nazis when they invaded the Soviet Union. Now, to find out why her father died, and who's responsible, Rachel (with her ex-husband, Paul) heads off to Germany, where she hopes to find the truth about the Amber Room.
While no “DeVinci Code” and I occasionally found Rachel a bit TSTL, which was unfortunately necessary to further the plot, this was an exciting, body-laden, action-driven story. Although I would have preferred a different ending and doubt this author will make my “must read” list, it kept me entertained.
