Critical Praise

"The fate of Mother Russia ups the ante for Berry's formula: based on international intrigue, swashbuckling action, indestructible hero from the American South. . . . Not to be missed."

——Kirkus Reviews

"In his accomplished second thriller, Berry turns to another great historical mystery --- the 1918 murder of Nicholas II and his family --- skillfully blending fact with a contemporary tale of conspiracy. . . . Exciting action, an engrossing puzzle, and atmospheric settings make this a great read. Highly recommended for all public libraries."

——Library Journal

"Berry uses Russia --- past and present --- to excellent effect and makes sharp observations about the contemporary Russian scene . . . a solid tale, a cut above --- and then some --- many thrillers on the market."

——Publishers Weekly

"The Romanov Prophecy grabs a hold of the reader within the first few pages . . . a captivating work . . . I'm surprised that The Romanov Prophecy doesn't come with a blood pressure cuff shrink-wrapped to it. But don't let that stop you from reading this riveting work . . . more than an artistic triumph in the thriller genre; it is also the ultimate justification of those who had faith in Berry and, more importantly, Berry's faith in himself. Highly recommended."
