I quite enjoyed this tale set in 1920's Russia. Inspector Pekkala is brought back from exile in Siberia to investigate the deaths of the Romanov family. When Alexei's corpse is not found with the rest of the bodies, Pekkala goes in search of him.

I really enjoyed the characters and the historical setting. The only thing that bothered me was the flashbacks being written in tiny italic print. Too old for that to be enjoyable. Not a flaw of the writing, of course, just of the printing. I look forward to reading the next in the series.
