Description

His name was Feliks. He came to London to commit a murder that would change history. He had many weapons at his command, but the most important were the love of a beautiful young woman longing for the end of innocence, and the passion of a high-born lady demanding satisfaction at any price. Against him were ranged the whole of the English police, a brilliant and powerful lord, and the young Winston Churchill himself. These odds would have stopped any man in the world except "The Man from St. Petersburg."
