The Romanov Conspiracy by Glenn Meade
From the author’s note:
“Much of what you are about to read is true.
The rest, but as small part, is fiction, part of the mosaic of storytelling that a writer must employ to bring life to his tale.
But as to which part is truth and which small part is fiction, I will leave that for you to decide.”
Glenn Meade had me from page one! The Romanov Conspiracy started off a bit slow–and even slightly confusing because there were so many characters to keep track of. But once the story got going it was non-stop action! I completely enjoyed the story–and I have no idea if it’s true or not! I hope it is, because this is a much more compelling telling of the events leading up to and the aftermath of the ordered execution of the Romanovs than the Communists wanted the world to know.
I especially appreciated that this author chose to use clean language throughout the story–very uncharacteristic for something of this genre. Seriously, there was not an h-e-double hockey sticks to be found. But some of the characters actually said things like “Bloody heck!” or “Where the heck did you learn to shoot like that?” or “Go to the devil!”
If you are looking for some heart stopping excitement combined with an intriguing, keep-you-on-the-edge-of-your-seat story, I highly recommend The Romanov Conspiracy!
