Description

From the author of the national bestseller The Kitchen Boy comes a gripping historical novel about imperial Russia's most notorious figure

Called "brilliant" by USA Today, Robert Alexander's historical novel The Kitchen Boy swept readers back to the doomed world of the Romanovs. His latest masterpiece once again conjures those turbulent days in a fictional drama of extraordinary depth and suspense. In the wake of the Russian Revolution, Maria Rasputin--eldest of the Rasputin children--recounts her infamous father's final days, building a breathless narrative of intrigue, excess, and conspiracy that reveals the shocking truth of her father's end and the identity of those who arranged it. What emerges is a nail-biting, richly textured new take on one of history's most legendary episodes.

Review quote

Employ[s] the fast pace of a thriller and the ability to make a remote historical episode personal to the reader. (Booklist) The combination of Alexander's research and his rich characterizations produces an engaging historical fiction that offers a Rasputin who is neither beast nor saint, but merely, compellingly human. (Publishers Weekly) For readers who like their juicy scandals topped with a hearty dollop of history, Alexander serves up a satisfying portrait of a court in its last throes of decadence and intrigue. (The Washington Post)
