They called it the Eighth Wonder of the World. For more than two hundred years, the world marveled at the fabled Amber Room. And then came the Nazis.
Since the second World War, one of the world's most magnificent lost treasures has lain hidden, and it's up to Navy SEALs Dane Maddock and "Bones" Bonebrake to find it again. Joined by Zara Leopov, their squad must follow the trail of clues from history in a perilous, action-packed race to find a treasure and unlock a deadly secret hidden in AMBER.
Praise for David Wood and the Dane Maddock Adventures
"Dane and Bones.... Together they're unstoppable. Rip roaring action from start to finish. Wit and humor throughout. Just one question - how soon until the next one? Because I can't wait."
Graham Brown, author of Shadows of the Midnight Sun
"What an adventure! A great read that provides lots of action, and thoughtful insight as well, into strange realms that are sometimes best left unexplored."
Paul Kemprecos, author of Cool Blue Tomb and the NUMA Files
“A page-turning yarn blending high action, Biblical speculation, ancient secrets, and nasty creatures. Indiana Jones better watch his back!”–Jeremy Robinson, author of SecondWorld
"With the thoroughly enjoyable way Mr. Wood has mixed speculative history with our modern day pursuit of truth, he has created a story that thrills and makes one think beyond the boundaries of mere fiction and enter the world of 'why not'?" --David Lynn Golemon, Author of Ancients, Event, Legend, and Leviathan
"A twisty tale of adventure and intrigue that never lets up and never lets go!" --Robert Masello, author of Bestiary and Blood and Ice
"Let there be no confusion: David Wood is the next Clive Cussler. Once you start reading, you won't be able to stop until the last mystery plays out in the final line." Edward G. Talbot, author of 2012: The Fifth World
"I like my thrillers with lots of explosions, global locations and a mystery where I learn something new. Wood delivers! Recommended as a fast paced, kick ass read."

Another great addition to the Dane and Bones series! Shorter than a Cussler, but every bit as riveting. Always full of action/adventure, good natured fun among the team, and an integration of history into current possibilities. See publisher's blurb for clues, no spoilers here except to remind that there is no gratuitous erotica.
Dane and Bones are at it again in this installment of the Origins series. They are on the hunt for the Fabled Amber Room and of course they encounter others who want to thwart them. The book is full of fun historical information, as well as a suspenseful mystery that needs to be solved by Dane and Bones who do so with the help of some friends and their sarcastic sense of humor. Great read! Love all the books in this series as well as the full length Dane and Bones books. You will not be disappoointed!
