One unremarkable winter morning, civil servant Richard Eusden is on his way to work in London when he is intercepted by his ex-wife, Gemma. She has sad news of his old friend, her other ex-husband, Marty Hewitson. Marty is dying, but needs one last favour done for him now, today, at once. Eusden reluctantly agrees.

But what should be a simple errand soon turns into a race for life - his and Marty's. It takes him across Belgium, Germany and Denmark and on into the Nordic heart of a mystery that somehow connects Marty's long-dead grandfather, Clem Hewitson, a police officer, with the tragic fate of the Russian Royal Family, murdered ninety years earlier.

    " Intricate plot, plenty of suspense, added historical interest with the question of Anastasia. "

    " The good things about this book were the mystery - it's all historically accurate according to the author's note and I really enjoy that kind of thing. The bad thing was the protagonist. He's presented as a civil servant doing the same job for decades and suddenly he's making decisions that keep him in danger without a strong reason. He seems the sort of person to see all the cloak and dagger stuff as nonsense and yet we're expected to believe that he stays involved when the mystery has little to do with him personally and there is no significant gain to be had by staying involved. I didn't buy it and got a little irritated with the book. "

    " I've read every one of Robert Goddard's mystery novels. This is the latest. He is a masterful plotter and a graceful writer. That said, I didn't think this one was quite as good as most of the others--not so many ingenious plot twists. The title is clever. And the reader doesn't find out until the last words of the novel what it means. "
