In the 18th century, the King of Prussia graciously sponsored the creation of a room in one of the palaces of Tsar Peter I (occasionally called "the Great) of Russia. This was the famous "Amber Room," noted for having some of the most elaborate mosaics ever created. In 1944, as part of a systematic pattern of art thefts, the Nazis removed the room from the palace and hid it away. It has never been rediscovered since. This thriller follows a trio of people whose lives are intertwined with the Amber Room. Lisa's father was actively searching for it when he died. He may even have been murdered because of that, so she begins to search for answers and gets drawn deep into what appears to be a labyrinth of shady characters and double-crosses. Ludwig is a music professor who is aware of the mystery of the Amber Room: he starts looking for it when he realizes that some of Wagner's manuscripts may hold clues to its whereabouts. Finally, Siegried is the son of one of the thieves of the room, and he too wants to find it. These three find reason to bond together when it becomes clear that they are being hunted by other, more sinister figures.
