“What a fun, fascinating read! Poe weaves a very plausible tale putting together what we know in history with a wild conspiracy tale that just could have happened. If you know Hal Poe, you know he is a wonderful story teller. And here, we have Hal at ...”
fication of the Romanov skeletons was the first great forensic use of DNA evidence. All agreed that the body of the Tsarevich Alexis was missing, but opinion differed about which daughter was missing. Americans, long enamored of the romantic story about the escape of Anastasia insisted that she was missing. The Russians, on the other hand, examined the bones and concluded that an older daughter was missing. They believed the missing person was the third daughter, Marie. How could it be possible for two children to escape? No one could have escaped the execution. Yet, it would have been possible to escape the House of Special Purposes several weeks before the execution. Many unexplained events took place in the ten days leading up to the execution. The local guard of Ural Russians was replaced by a special detachment. Until then, the imperial family was allowed to receive gifts of food and wine from their admirers. The rulers in Moscow had planned to put the family on trial, and they had plenty of time to remove the Romanovs from Ekaterinburg to a place of safety far away from the advancing White army. After the events of that dreadful night, Lenin said that the children were still alive and safe because he believed they were dead. In this telling of the story, Stalin would insist that all the children were dead because he knew that two of them still lived. This story follows the desperate escape of Marie and the new young Tsar Alexis as they make their way across the face of Russia. Marie, the daughter who nursed her mother and excelled at foreign languages while constantly putting on plays in the palace, had the unique set of skills needed by the royalists to preserve the Heir and secure the crown. This story also follows the growing paranoia of Stalin into madness as he destroys millions of people in his effort to hide his greatest secret: it was his fault that the children escaped. This story mixes the historical circumstances of Stalin’s Soviet state with the many unexplained and inconsistent aspects of Stalin’s behavior. Why did he wait so long to have Trotsky killed when he thought nothing of sending millions to their deaths? Why did he eliminate some of those associated with the killing of the tsar’s family but let others live for so long? This telling of the story of the killing of the tsar’s family explores how a variety of unrelated details could all converge to explain one another in terms of Stalin’s attempt to cover up his unwitting complicity in the one event that threatened the survival of the Soviet regime.
