The Amber Room

In Florian's Gate, T. Davis Bunn introduced his growing readership to the fascinating world of European art and antiques. During months of research, he discovered and pursued the legend of The Amber Room, an ensemble of precious 18th century wall panels that graced a tsarist palace in St. Petersburg. Stolen by Nazi invaders, it was carried off to a castle in East Prussia. Dubbed 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 the war. Was it destroyed by fire as officials claim, or was it mysteriously hidden away? "Unearthing the mystery" has led T. Davis Bunn to a maze of tunnels under a former Nazi headquarters in Weimar and to concrete SS bunkers in the hills of Jonastal.

Reaching back to the ravages of the war, the lessons of faith and forgiveness discovered in Florian's Gate continue in this momentous sequel. Alexander Kantor and his assistant Jeffrey join a trail of intrigue and cover-ups that surround the Amber Room, and it pulls them into a web of deception.

A metaphor for spiritual growth, the search for these treasures helps Alexander discover the paradox that greatness in God's eyes is expressed through humility. Jeffrey learns to apply the same zeal with which he hunts for artwork to his quest for the knowledge of God. Together they find a new understanding of human nature and divine love.

Jeffrey learns to apply the same zeal with which he hunts for artwork to his quest for the knowledge of God. Together they find a new understanding of human nature and divine love.^^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.
