Hilton, Howard Hoyt
In World War II, as Germany started its siege of Leningrad, the Russians safeguarded many precious works of art there by moving them by rail to caves deep in the Urals. Despite this, the Nazis were able to commandeer truckloads of valuable artworks. However, since the war, the most valuable works of all, the twelve fabled mosaic Amber Panels from Catherine Palace, have never been found. Whether this extraordinarily large treasure was removed and hidden by the Russians or was confiscated by the Nazis and transported to Germany is the intriguing mystery which draws a French couple into mortal conflict with a pair of German treasure-hunters already seeking the prize. The rivalry to find the amber panels escalates into a life-or-death struggle as the headlong chase sweeps from the frigid shores of the Baltic to labyrinthine salt mines in the Austrian Alps.Hilton, Howard Hoyt is the author of 'Deadly Amber Chase ', published 2004 under ISBN 9781413714456 and ISBN 1413714455.
