Book arrived in good time, as promised. The seller gave a good description about the condition of the book, which was 100% accurate. Loved the basis of the book which delved into the murder and identification of the Tsar Nicholas II's immediate family and their attendants. The story follows decades of investigations which were so fascinating. I loved the chapters on the imposters , which included the full story and investigation of the supposed Anastasia. I highly recommend this book.

After reading Massie's Peter the Great and Catherine the Great this book was the perfect conclusion to the saga of Russian royal rule. Especially enjoyable is the author's ability to render historical fact in such a way as to make for riveting reading. His astonishingly detailed research is evident in the minutia he is able to reveal about his characters without making it tedious. The reader is lead through events almost as if there.

This was a Very Horrible time in Russia and the Tsar and his family and anybody he ever had dealings with from his Mistress the Prima Balerina of the Russian Ballet to every member of the Royal Family of Romanov were hunted down if not trapped in their palaces, this book gives you a closer feeling of what the Tsar and his immediate Family suffered through in their imprisonement. This is another top notch book seller through Amazon.Com

This book doesn't keep me glued to the pages but it is interesting to read about the investigation into the Romanov deaths. Potential buyers need to know that this book contains little information about the reign of Tsar Nicholas II - this is non-fiction book about the investigation into the murders of the Romanovs and their aids. I would recommend this to anyone interested in Russian or Communist History.

The final chapter in the Romanov's saga is a very interesting read. I wanted to read this book by Robert K. Massie- all the other books on this subject were by the same author. I really love the way he writes and tells a story. Anyone interested in Russian history will enjoy this book. Politics and history- a good combination. May be still some unanswered questions- intriguing.

A sad human story made less interesting and moving by a very well (goo well?)researched investigation of every facet of the discovery of the bodies and the authentication of them not to mention chapter and verse on the egomania of those litigators fighting to try and profit from it all. Finally of interest probably to mad still-existing pretenders to the imperial crown.

I enjoy biographies which is what I was expecting when I bought this book. However, this book is really only about the execution of the Romanovs and the investigations that happened after. It's not a bad book. In fact, it's quite interesting, engaging, and well-researched. But if you're looking for a biography about the lives of the Romanovs, this ain't it.

I have got this book out of curiosity and was not mistaken. On my fair opinion it is a bestseller. I really enjoyed reading it. If you are really interested to what had happened to the last Emperor of all the Russia, read this book!!
I rate it five star! My grand applause to the author! I bought more of his books, I am pretty sure I will also like them.

I know very little about Russia's history, so this has really enlightened me. Their history, their wealth, their wars--all totally intriguing. I didn't know how Nicholas was so opposed to the war. Yet, he seemed so short-sighted about the economy and production advances. I'd have thought he'd learn from Germany!
