The search for the lost archive intertwines three diverse lives. Mikhail Borisov, ex KGB, now a wealthy oligarch exiled from Russia, risks all to return to power. He is haunted by deeds he performed in the past. Katya Marston, spoiled, brought up in luxury in England, has been orphaned since birth, her parents unknown. Reuben Yoder, known as Roo, a deputy sheriff regrets his misspent life and seeks redemption.
Katya and Roo hold the key to finding the archive but at a price that may cost them their lives as they race between London, New York, Ohio and the French Alps to save the course of history.
This historically accurate thriller is a sequel to The Blood Stiller, Book One of the Russian Trilogy, but can be read as a novel on its own. The action packed plot weaves the dark violent past of the Russian Revolution involving the Romanovs and deliberations of Stalin's murderous clique into an equally intriguing present day adventure exploring the mystery surrounding the lives of the three main characters.
