Wonderfully suspenseful story with just enough romance thrown in for a woman's attention-getting (not too much to detract a man from the story). I never knew there was such a thing as the Amber Room and now I'm off on a history-reading tangent for yet another sideline to WWII. That's the mark of a great suspense novel for me--that it makes me want to research for myself the premise behind the story...
Good plot and plenty of suspense
Another outstanding Berry book!
I didn't think I'd like this book as much as I did. It's well written and I loved the historical facts woven in with the story. I'll be honest, I didn't enjoy the main characters much, but I adored the two main assassins and the competition between them throughout the book. A great read for people that like historically based thrillers.
Mr. Berry never ever disappoints. I think this is the second book I have read of his and I have gone on to read them all. The one particularly caught my attention because of the detailed description of the opulence of Russia under the Romanoff's and what became of their treasures. Read it, it's a great read.
From the book cover: "Sexy, illuminating, and confident...a globe trotting treasure hunt packed with exotic locales, sumptuous art, nd ruthless villians. Magnificently engrossing, with wonderful characters and a plot that speeds, twists, and turns. Pure intrigue, pure fun"
