The book is based on real events of the Great Patriotic War. In the summer of 1941, Sudoplatov, who headed the sabotage department in the central apparatus of the NKVD, launched an operation that is still considered the highest aerobatics of the secret struggle. It lasted practically throughout the war and at various stages was called "Monastery", "Couriers", "Obedience" and "Berezino". Its intention was initially to bring to the German intelligence center purposeful information about the allegedly existing in Moscow anti-Soviet religious-monarchist organization. It was necessary at any cost to make the Germans believe in it as a real force, the fifth column in the Soviet rear, and, having established a permanent connection with the enemy on its behalf, to penetrate the intelligence network of the Nazis in the Soviet Union. To this end, the famous opposition poet Sadovsky decided to use the role of head of the legendary organization "Throne". In our book we will tell about the first part of the multi-pass operation of the Soviet special services "Monastery". The reader will find in our novel interesting stories about Russian emigration in Harbin and Europe and its most prominent representatives, about the Russian fascist party and the Abwehr's work, about the operations of the Main Intelligence Agency and Soviet counterintelligence, about the life of the criminal community and the beginning of the "bitchy" war in the Gulag, about Sudoplatov and his entourage.
