Tsarist Intrigue

34001055 Last month’s announcement that Afghani officials had finally unearthed the final resting place of its slain royal family helped put to end the 30 year-mystery of their fate. But long before the House of Shah was massacred, Russia’s Romanovs were gunned down by Bolsheviks in 1918 during that nation’s revolution. Now the latter tale fully comes to light in the new book The Last Days of the Romanovs by author-scholar Helen Rappaport. Employing ample archival data and documents, Rappaport transforms Tsar Nicholas’ final weeks — and those of his family — into a Bourne-worthy thriller.
