Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
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.

Review by Library Journal (2012-08-01)

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 story lines, 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.

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.
