Physical Description: p. Abstract: "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 , Pavlov discovers a body perfectly preserved in the permafrost of a disused mine shaft.
A female body, encased and preserved in ice, is unearthed in a mine shaft in the Urals near the resting place of the Romanov family. Other bodies are also disposed of in the mine shafts but this one is of particular interest and leads the protagonist to Ireland and to an old Russian named Yakov who claims to be the son of the commissar Yakov tasked with the final disposal of the Romanov family in He then weaves a story together that is both historically correct, as far as I could tell, and enjoyable to read.

An estimated 30 million people perish. That part is not in the book. It's still a fascinating piece of , though.
