The Romanovs, Russian Royal family, were purportedly executed in 1917 during the Revolution. A dozen years later, the Tsar's special investigator, Pekkala, is rescued from Siberian exile to determine if some newly discovered bodies are those of the murdered family. He may also be able to uncover the Royal family's hidden gold.

Sam Eastland fleshes out Pekkala's background in a story that's interwoven with that of the 1929 adventure. Patience is needed to wade through a multitude of foreign character names and several of the story's threads seem more extraneous than essential but great pacing, interesting characters and a few twists at the end make for an enjoyable read.
