From the author of the national bestseller The Kitchen Boy comes a gripping historical novel about imperial Russia's most notorious figure

Called "brilliant" by USA Today , Robert Alexander's historical novel The Kitchen Boy swept readers back to the doomed world of the Romanovs. His latest masterpiece once again conjures those turbulent days in a fictional drama of extraordinary depth and suspense. In the wake of the Russian Revolution, Maria Rasputin--eldest of the Rasputin children--recounts her infamous father's final days, building a breathless narrative of intrigue, excess, and conspiracy that reveals the shocking truth of her father's end and the identity of those who arranged it. What emerges is a nail-biting, richly textured new take on one of history's most legendary episodes.

Not a bad read. The last week of Rasputin's life as told by his eldest daughter. Interesting. Not as fully fleshed out as it could have been. There could have been a lot more character development.

Although Rasputin's life and character are fascinating, this pseudo love story is fake and a complete waste of time to the story line. I would much rather read a nonfiction account of Rasputin and his family to get the real story!
