Publisher's Summary

In 1917, Nicholas II, Tsar of Russia, was executed by revolutionaries. Now, in response to the collapse of the country's economy, the people have voted to instate a new Tsar, one who will be chosen from the descendents of Nicholas II. But a powerful group of Western businessmen want to make sure he is a candidate they can control, and hire African-American lawyer Miles Lord, with his knowledge of Russian language and history, to check the background of their chosen man. Miles is thrilled with his assignment...until he becomes the target of an assassination attempt and must run for his life, guided by a cryptic phrase penned by Rasputin, and a bizarre prophecy that the Tsar will return to the throne and that Miles himself will see to it.


What the Critics Say

This was well worth it.

Let me start off by saying the narrator is awesome. I cant count how many times a good book is ruined by bad narration. This guy takes a blow away story and makes it real. The book itself is very well put togather.The very beginning gets off to a thrilling jump. I had trouble turning off my big rig because I had to hear the next turn in the story. I actually bought a Ipod because of audio books like these. Now I can unload my truck and listen to great books like this one.

Action in the Russia of today and yesterday...

If you love a good plot and a way to understand modern Russia...this is a book you'll want to listen to. I say "listen to" rather than "read" because I'm reviewing this book as an audio file. I find some books great to read but hard to follow in audible form. I listen while exercising, and can pay pretty close attention, but some I find myself getting lost or doing lots of "rewinding" with some books. Not this one. Though lots of action and plot turns, this was a joy to listen to. As a person who goes to Russia frequently, I found its description of Russian places and customs accurate. It combines a good knowledge of current Russian culture and thought with a good bit of Russian history from the beginning of the 20th century. I hated to see my exercise work outs come to an end because I wanted to know what happened next. This one will keep you listening.
