The Man from Moscow turns out to be a fascinating former aristocrat, who, for political reasons, must confine himself to the Metropol hotel in the center of Moscow for many years. A limited set, to be sure, but one that serves to delineate a life well-lived. Entirely wonderful, well written and packed with history, romance, love and danger.

In my opinion, the Man in Moscow was a challenge to get through. There were times I wanted to move on to another book but stayed with the "Man" expecting the story to become interesting. Many have read the "Man" and have really enjoyed it.

The Man in Moscow tells about an aristocrat living in Russia who has never worked a day in his life, until the Bolsheviks sentenced him to working as a waiter in one of Moscow's largest hotels, the Metropol. Actually the "Man' eventually finds he enjoys the new

aka Robert Conington Galway, Duncan MacNeil

Philip McCutchan (1920-1996) grew up in the naval atmosphere of Portsmouth Dockyard and developed a lifetime's interest in the sea. Military history was an early interest resulting in several fiction books, from amongst his large output, about the British Army and its campaigns, especially in the last 150 years.
