    Double Deception was a decent OMEGA book about Blade and Victoria who have been circling each other for years and when they are handed a mission dealing with the lost Russian Amber Room sparks fly Victoria doesn't like or trust Blade's reputation with women having an ex just like that One thing I disliked was how uick Blade was to distrust her and then bam suddenly all is fineI kind of also didn't like the knife pulling thing it got old and I didn't get where Blade's mistrust came from and his past is never talked aboutI liked the very first book of this series and read on just for continuity and nostalgia I guess I am a SERIES follower

    The matter of the Amber Room in Russia has long interested me perhaps because I find amber itself so fascinating That means that I've also seen documentaries on TV about this lost treasure While I was in Vienna Austria I went to see Schoenbrunn Palace just outside the city which also has a room decorated with a lot of amber After seeing it I wondered how much beautiful the other must have been

    The setting post Cold War Russia and the suspense plot centering on the mysterious disappearance of the Amber Room definitely got my attention I loved the mood of the story and the spy vs spy action However the relationship between the leads left something to be desired Here's my TBR Challenge 2012 column on the book
