Black Amber

by Whitney, Phyllis A

Condition: Good


New York: Harpercollins, 1991-09-01. Mass Market Paperback. Good. spine creasing, edge wear; Tracy Hubbard arrives in Istanbul to work with artist Miles Radburn. That's her cover, since her real reason for coming is to track down answers to a tragedy that befell her half-sister. Tracy believes no one knows of the "sisters" connection, but begins to wonder if her assumption is correct as she becomes more deeply drawn into a whirlpool of conspiracy and intrigue. In the abandoned ruins of a palace she overhears a heated argument in Turkish. The only word she understands is her own name. She watches a small, unlighted boat pay a nocturnal visit to the dock of the villa's garden. Unknown hands mark a disturbing passage in a book with a string of black amber beads. As a deadly menace swirls around her, there is no one Tracy dares to trust. And when she comes to the realization that she already knows too much -- or perhaps it's that others know too much about her -- she becomes keenly aware that her life is in danger.
