Beschreibung

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.

An exciting read with an intriguing background

The premise of this novel may the hardest thing to come to terms with, as the Russians are looking for a new Czar to rule their country, but the rest is an action packed adventure, in which an Afro-American lawyer must escape many attempts on his life as he discovered some hints of what really happened to the Romanovs when they were killed after the Russian Revolution. Fast paced, but never exaggerated, and with lots of interesting (and mostly accurate) historical detail.
