This was a fantastic thriller. I listened to Michael Kitchen read it in the car and found myself devising errands so that I could listen some more. The premise is that Stalin kept a private notebook. After he died it was taken by a rival and hidden. Then time passed, the USSR dissolved, Russia is trying to adjust to new ways. (Great depiction of that time and place). Finally the only guy who knows where is was (a bodyguard) is prevailed upon to tell a British historian. But the bad guys chase them and play dirty.
