Art, thieves, and intrigue all combine in this historical novel. During World War II, the Nazi army looted ancient Czarist palaces and museums in Russia, stealing art of incalculable value. Among the objects stolen was a unique and exceptional piece, which mysteriously disappeared during the last days of the conflict. This object is the Amber Salon, an 18th-century room constructed entirely of semitransparent amber from the Baltic. In seeking this magnificent object, Ana Galdeano, a respected antiquarian, finds herself obliged to disentangle the threads of a scheme conjured up 50 years earlier by two very dangerous Nazi officials. In The Amber Salon, Matilde Asensi twists a new turn of the screw in adventure writing.
