Overview

Glenn Meade’s electrifying latest novel combines the epic sweep and drama of a heroic quest, the passion and tragedy of Doctor Zhivago, and a majestic cast of characters that will stay with you long after the final pages have been turned. . . .

SOMETIMES MYSTERIES ARE NEVER SOLVED. SOMETIMES THERE ARE NO ANSWERS.

Dr. Laura Pavlov, an American forensic archaeologist, is about to unravel a mystery that promises to shed light on one of the 20th century’s greatest enigmas.

A member of an international team digging on the outskirts of the present-day Russian city of Ekaterinburg, where the Romanov royal family was executed in July 1918, Pavlov discovers a body perfectly preserved in the permafrost of a disused mine shaft.

The remains offer dramatic new clues to the disappearance of the Romanovs, and in particular their famous daughter, Princess Anastasia, whose murder has always been in question. Pavlov’s discovery sets her on an unlikely journey to Ireland, where a carefully hidden account of a years-old covert mission is about to change the accepted course of world history and hurl her back into the past—into a maelstrom of deceit, secrets, and lies.

Drawn from historical fact, The Romanov Conspiracy is a high-tension story of love and friendship tested by war, and a desperate battle between revenge and redemption, set against one of the most bloody and brutal revolutions in world history.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A British plot to rescue the imprisoned Nicholas II and his family from the Bolsheviks propels this intriguing if overly long historical from Meade (The Second Messiah). In the present, Dr. Laura Pavlov, while engaged in an archeological dig outside the Russian city of Ekaterinburg, discovers an unidentified female body preserved in the permafrost. In the corpse’s hand is a locket with the seal of the Romanovs that may hold a clue to their fate. Flashback to 1918. The agent in charge of the rescue mission, Irish-Canadian Joe Boyle, enlists Lydia Ryan, an Irish gun runner, and Uri Andrev, an escaped czarist army captain, in what proves to be a wildly complex effort involving scores of characters to save the Russian royal family. While Meade strains at time to dovetail fiction with history, he puts a fresh spin on the mystery surrounding the deaths of the Romanovs, in particular the possible escape of princess Anastasia. Agent: Claudia Cross, Sterling Lord Literistic. (Aug.)
Book Hog
"Full of conspiracies, torture, misplaced loyalty, and longing, it will be hard to separate fact from fiction. Many of the participants were real people, and Mr. Meade has done a stupendous job in tracing their footsteps through one of the bloodiest times in Russian history. . . . So if you find yourself sitting on a quiet stretch of sand, or relaxing after mowing that thick, green lawn, pick up The Romanov Conspiracy and get ready to spend the rest of your week reading a story that is impossible to put down."
Christian Retailing
"Reading similarly to both a Thoene novel and The Da Vinci Code, bestselling author Meade’s The Second Messiah will keep readers on the edge of their proverbial seats . . . The Second Messiah reads quickly and will hold the reader’s attention with its many plot twists. In the story, Meade also addresses the problem of suffering in an insightful comment from the pope. Fans of fiction tied to news headlines will enjoy this geopolitical thriller. Recommended for readers of Joel C. Rosenberg."
Stephen Leather
“Dan Brown meets Tom Clancy—Glenn Meade sure knows how to get your pulse racing. I was gripped from page one. Whether The Second Messiah is fact or fiction is up for debate, but one thing’s for sure—it’s one heck of a thriller. You know you’re in safe hands with Glenn Meade—The Second Messiah is a rollercoaster of a thriller that lifts the lid on the inner workings of the Vatican and leaves you wondering just how much of the fiction is actually fact."
Midwest Book Review
“A thrill a minute. A cross between Indiana Jones and Dan Brown. Thriller readers will love this book.”
Charisma
"Written in the mold of The Da Vinci Code—sans all the erroneous claims (thankfully)—bestselling author Glenn Meade’s latest geographical thriller, The Second Messiah, keeps readers on the edge of their proverbial seats with multiple plot twists."
Crosswalk.com
"Meade knows how to entangle, and untangle, an exciting array of characters and plots guaranteed to keep the reader hooked . . . a talented storyteller, he sets the scene quickly before taking off on a rollicking ride that keeps the pages turning. It’s a hard book to put down."
Booklist
“Meade's second foray into international intrigue imagines that Nazis biding time in South America hatch a viable plot to take over contemporary Germany. The novel opens with a splendidly tantalizing episode of eavesdropping by a Paraguayan reporter who, before he's caught and killed, hides a tell-tale tape recording. . . . Fast, sly, and slick, this thriller delivers the goods—tension, action, plot twists—until the smoke clears on the last page.”
The Washington Post
Praise for Glenn Meade's other work:

"Meade's research is so extensive yet unobtrusive . . . that it is often easy to forget you're reading fiction and not history. This a completely riveting thriller in the tradition of the Day of the Jackal. A white knuckler!"

From the Publisher
"The Romanov Conspiracy is a book that affirms our essential goodness as human beings and our capacity for forgiveness. . . . it reveals our potential for tenacity, bravery and resilience, even when we're faced with overwhelming odds."

". . . puts a fresh spin on the mystery surrounding the deaths of the Romanovs, in particular the possible escape of princess Anastasia."

"The Irish-born author (Snow Wolf) teeters on the edge of genius and sacrilege with this thriller about a subject known since the time of Christ. When archeologist Jack Cane discovers ancient documents that point to the existence of another messiah, he also quickly finds out that both Israeli and Catholic authorities have reason to possess, or suppress, such documents. Racked with the pain of personal loss, he meets up with an old friend, Lela, who is part of an Israeli police team investigating multiple crimes, including a cold case involving the possible murder of Cane's parents—also archeologists—20 years earlier. Some who have avoided Christian fiction or only dipped in will find this departure from the mold refreshing, even while some regular readers of Christian fiction may find certain passages revolting. Fans of Davis Bunn or Dan Brown won't bat an eye at Meade's unblinking look at the Vatican and the religious secrecy that fuels such novels. With a plot that screams, a controversial edge, and characters with attitude and something to prove, this has all the makings to be the next Da Vinci Code."

“Dan Brown meets Tom Clancy—Glenn Meade sure knows how to get your pulse racing. I was gripped from page one. Whether The Second Messiah is fact or fiction is up for debate, but one thing’s for sure—it’s one heck of a thriller.

Library Journal
After finding the body of a young woman preserved in the permafrost outside the present-day Russian city of Ekaterinburg, Dr. Laura Pavlov believes she may have found the missing remains of Princess Anastasia Romanov. The importance of this discovery spurs Pavlov to visit Ireland to seek more information about the execution of the Russian royal family in 1918 from a man who claims to know things that have never been documented. The story he tells her is about lifelong friends pitted against each other, trust in the most deplorable of circumstances, and a frantic attempt to save the lives of Russia's most famous royal family. VERDICT While occasionally involving an unwieldy number of characters and storylines, this steady thriller will engage readers across the board. Meade (The Second Messiah; The Devil's Disciple) adds a fictional flourish to a true story while maintaining respect for history. He also includes a fair amount of romance to counterbalance the violence and throws in some cleverness to offset the unbelievable. Readers will find themselves satisfied and perhaps wondering a little bit more about this riveting historical period.—Madeline Solien, Deerfield P.L., IL
Kirkus Reviews
The fate of Anastasia, daughter of Tsar Nicholas II, the last Russian emperor, is at the heart of this cross-continental tale of espionage, infatuation, martyrdom, massacre and archaeology. Did the Bolsheviks kill her along with the rest of her family, as history tells us, or did she escape? Meade, prompted by his discovery of Russian graves in the burial grounds of a small church in his native Ireland, concocts a history-based tale about an attempt to rescue the imprisoned Romanovs. The year is 1918. The man spearheading the operation is Boyle, a wealthy Irish-Canadian whose storied past includes being amateur heavyweight boxing champion in the U.S. His rescue team includes Lydia Ryan, an Irish gunrunner, and Andrev, a Russian army captain who escaped execution. The large cast of characters includes Borg, a laudanum-addicted American spy posing as a businessman who falls for the teenage Anastasia, and, in cameos, Lenin and Trotsky. The story is told by a man named Yakov to archaeologist Laura Pavlov. She tracks him down in the coastal Irish town of Collon after digging up the permafrost-preserved body of a young girl in Ekaterinburg, the Russian town where the Romanovs were killed. The girl is clutching a locket with the seal of the family. Could this be Anastasia, aka Anna Anderson? The novel is so stuffed with characters and narrative complications, not all of them compelling, that the princess' story gets a bit lost in the shuffle. And Andrev, "a truly remarkable man...who changed history," according to Yakov, doesn't make a deep impression. But give credit to Meade (The Second Messiah, 2011, etc.) for rebooting a story that, after various films, plays, mini-series and Steve Berry's 2004 novel, The Romanov Prophecy, seemed played out. A flawed book, but one that has its moments.

    I do not often read thrillers- but since this one was one of my lifelong favorite topics the Romanovs I had to give it a try. WOW This is the very best book ever on the Romonov's I loved the fact that it is so much like Dr. Zhivago.
    So many twists- turns and questions. Being intigued by Anastasia this book answered some questions and gave me new things to think about. This is more than a thriller - it is a love story- a human story. I love this book

    An Exciting Page-Turner

    I have always been interested in the Romanov's after reading "Nicholas and Alexandra" back in the 70's. This book gives another perspective to the story, which is fascinating in and of itself. I found it to be extremely interesting and engaging with a wonderful twist at the end.

    Wow! Incredible! My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars. Disclaimers:

    Wow! Incredible!

    My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars.

    Disclaimers: I received an arc of this book from the publisher, Howard Books (a division of Simon and Schuster) in exchange for my honest opinion.

    My Overall Thoughts/Impressions: Wow! Just wow! That's all I really need to say about this book. I adored everything about this book. It is easily one of my favorites of the year.

    I feel like the synopsis accurately describes maybe 18% of the novel if not less. In the first thirty pages, Dr. Pavlov does discover two bodies perfectly preserved in permafrost that leads to her discovery of the Romanov conspiracy; however, most of the novel is told as if the characters from 1918 were telling the story themselves.

    The first thirty pages were great, but not spectacular. The rest of the novel was mind-blowing.

    I absolutely adored the story that Meade created because it was gripping, compelling, and addicting. I didn't just devour this book, the novel consumed me. I couldn't think of anything else. I read for hours and then realized I hadn't eaten all day. However, I couldn't stop reading.

    I loved all of the characters in this novel. I won't take the time to list them. But they all seemed so realistic. They didn't all get the happy ending I wanted them to have either, which made Meade's novel more realistic and also more heart-breaking.

    I could gush about this book for hours. But I'm just going to say I adored this book. Don't just read this one, buy this one. You will absolutely adore it. I love mystery, thriller, action books and this book ranks among the best I've ever read.

    In Summary: I can't find the words to adequately express how truly incredible this book is. This book consumed me. I couldn't think of anything else. Definitely worth buying.

    The Wrap-up: This book was one that I was sad to finish. It was so incredible that I couldn't bear the thought of parting with it. I will definitely be stalking...I mean keeping tabs on...this author. In case you can't tell, I LOVE LOVE LOVED this novel. Go buy it right now!

    Love,

    Danica Page

    The Romanov Conspiracy - Taut and Complex

    The Russian Revolution was certainly a bloody affair. Fear and chaos abounded. It turned an entire nation upside down. And in the center of it all was the brutal assignation of the Tsar and his family. A murder surrounded in a mystery, which became legendary. Did the daughter of the Russian royal family survive? Glenn Meades’ latest novel, The Romanov Conspiracy hits the ground running with a gritty and harrowing account of an attempted rescue of the Tsar and his family during the final days of the Russian revolution. In the center of the story are Uri Andrev and Leonid Yakov. Friends since childhood, they find themselves on opposite sides of the revolution. Bitterness and anger rooted in betrayal and fueled by events spinning wildly out of control cause both men to seek to undo the other. But even war can’t totally unravel the cords of deep friendship Uri and Leonid had woven over a lifetime. Paramount to the plot is the Romanov family – the Tsar, his wife and children – including the willful Anastasia, held captive by Lenin’s men and soon to be murdered. But help is coming in the form of a headstrong Irish gunner runner, Lydia Ryan, and Joe Boyle, a man of mystery who has been on more than one death defying mission. Together with Uri Andrev they infiltrate Russia, making their way through the chaotic blood-soaked countryside, hoping to free the imprisoned Tsar and his family before it’s too late. Meades' novel is taut, historically rich, and replete with complex characters. It will quickly draw you into the horrifying upheaval that was the Russian Revolution and leave you breathless. However, as an author known well to the Christian market, Meade does promote, albeit subtlety, the worldview that in the midst of heartache and turmoil it’s okay to “love the one you’re with”. In The Romanov Conspiracy two of the characters find solace in the arms of someone other than their spouse. The underlying feeling being that God understands. That, for me, made a stellar novel less great. A courtesy copy of The Romanov Conspiracy received from Simon and Schuster in exchange for an honest review.
