"The Amber Room" by Steve Berry
Are you looking for a quick summer read for the airport or beach? If so, then “The Amber Room” by Steve Berry might just fit the bill. Atlanta judge Rachel Cutler takes off to Germany following clues left by her father who recently died. A Russian immigrant, he had spent time in a Nazi concentration camp during WWII and later served in a Soviet post to track art lost/stolen during the war. Rachel heads off in search of The
Amber Room, one the treasures never recovered. She is soon followed by her ex-husband, probate lawyer Paul, and they end up following clues and fighting for their lives as they get caught between two competing groups of “bad guys” who are also searching for The Amber Room. A little slow going at the beginning, the second half of the book keeps up a rapid pace.
