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.

The history of art has produced few works as ambitious and as valuable as the Amber Room. Famous throughout Europe as "the eighth wonder of the world," its vast and intricately worked amber panels were sent in 1717 by Frederick I of Prussia as a gift to Peter the Great of Russia. Erected some years later, they quickly became a symbol of Russia's imperial might. For more than two hundred years the Amber Room remained in its Russian palace outside St. Petersburg (Leningrad), but when the Nazi army invaded Russia and swept towards Leningrad in 1941, the panels were wrenched from the walls, packed into crates, and disappeared from view, never to be seen again. Dozens of people have tried to trace the whereabouts of the Amber Room, and several of them have died in mysterious circumstances. Adrian Levy and Catherine Scott-Clark have gone further along the trail of this great lost treasure than anyone before them, and have unraveled the jumble of evidence surrounding its fate. Their search catapulted them across eastern Europe and into the menacing world of espionage and counterespionage that still surrounds Russia and the former Soviet bloc. In archives in St. Petersburg and Berlin, amid boxes of hitherto unseen diaries, letters, and classified reports, they have uncovered for the first time an astounding conspiracy to hide the truth. In a gripping climax that is a triumph of detection and narrative journalism, The Amber Room shows incontrovertibly what really happened to the most valuable lost artwork in the world, and why the truth has been withheld for so long.
Unquestionably one of the most valuable and ambitious works in the entire history of art, the Amber Room was famous throughout Europe as the eighth wonder of the world. Its vast and intricately worked amber panels were sent by Frederick I of Prussia to Peter the Great of Russia in 1717 as a gift, and soon became a symbol of Russia's imperial might. For over two hundred years the room remained in Russia, but with the outbreak of war, Germany laid claims to it once again it as a showpiece for the Third Reich. When the Nazis swept into St Petersburg, it was ripped from the walls, packed into crates and disappeared from view, never to be seen again.
