A strange and terrifying ability surfaces in investigative journalist Sam Cleave, leaving his associate, Dr. Nina Gould, worried for his health. But Sam is not the one she should be worried about. Nina discovers Sam's psychic talent is not meant to help others - quite the opposite.
Somewhere, Sam has contracted a parasite that attacks the brain, facilitating heightened powers of hypnotic suggestion through increased electrical activity in the neurons. In other words: mind control.
When their mutual friend, David Purdue, is kidnapped and tortured by an evil Nazi by the name of Klaus Kemper, a distant connection to Sam's malady comes into play. Kemper knows Sam's psychic powers are the work of an ancient organism that happens to be caught within the amber resin used in the legendary lost art masterpiece, the Amber Room, and he wants the power it holds to brainwash the world into submission.
Purdue, Sam, and Nina embark on a quest to find the Amber Room, reputed to have been destroyed during WWII. They have 48 hours to deliver it to Kemper or else the Order of the Black Sun will execute the German chancellor and subjugate the countries of the European Union.
But the last lost pieces of the Amber Room are hidden by a clandestine Red Army unit under one of the most inaccessible and hazardous locations in the world: the Chernobyl Power Plant.
Mystery of the Amber Room leads the listener on a roller-coaster ride in search of a legend. Packed with breathtaking suspense and nerve-shredding action, Mystery of the Amber Room is a thrilling listen for all fans of action, suspense, and intrigue.
