Seizing Amber

JACKET NOTES:  From the streets of New York to the gardens of Paris and the ornate drawing rooms of Renaissance Florence, Seizing Amber follows a high stakes quest for one of the world’s most valuable treasures. The Amber Room—an exquisite chamber made of amber panels that was stolen from the Russians during World War II—holds not only its priceless value, but the key to the lives of those who seek it.
Now in the post–Cold War present, Isaiah Hawkins, chief of a U.S. intelligence agency, discovers that the Amber Room is being offered for sale. In a quest to influence the world’s political stage, Hawkins sets out on a mission to capture the Room and the power it holds. In a whirlwind of intrigue and suspense, Hawkins’ team, including a street-smart blackmailer and a sexy but dangerous agent who seemingly has nothing to lose, must outsmart devious and exotic competitors to seize the Amber Room and find what matters to them most.
Jonathan Harris weaves a tight and gripping plot with a grand love story. And just when the tension reaches a boiling point, Harris delivers an ending that drops the reader through a series of unexpected trap doors.
