"Through the power of the author's imagination, we see not only the tragedy of the Emperor, but that of a human being, man, and father."
——Ivan Artsyshevsky, The Romanov Family Association
"Ingenious...Keeps readers guessing through the final pages."
"A gripping and entirely believable description of the last days of the Romanovs...Thoroughly enjoyable, educational, and just a good old-fashioned page-turner."
——Margaret George, author of Mary, Called Magdalene
"This is a dream of a book... [Robert Alexander's] tough, stylish prose is the perfect medium for this fast-becoming myth of evil and innocence, of frailty and courage, of betrayal and redemption."
