An ingenious, fast-paced historical thriller from the New York Times bestselling author of The Last Templar
On a cold, bleak day in 1916, all hell breaks loose in a
mining pit in the Ural Mountains. Overcome by a strange paranoia, the miners
attack one another, savagely and ferociously. Minutes later, two men—a
horrified scientist and Grigory Rasputin, trusted confidant of the tsar—hit a
detonator, blowing up the mine to conceal all evidence of the carnage.
In the present day, FBI agent Sean Reilly’s search for Reed
Corrigan, the CIA mind-control spook who brainwashed Reilly’s son, takes a
backseat to a new, disturbing case. A Russian embassy attaché seems to have
committed suicide by jumping out of a fourth-floor window in Queens. The
apartment’s owners, a retired physics teacher from Russia and his wife, have
gone missing, and further investigation reveals that the former may not be who
the FBI believes him to be.
Joined by Russian Federal Security Service agent Larisa
Tchoumitcheva, Reilly’s investigation of the old man’s identity will uncover a
desperate search for a small, mysterious device, with consequences that reach
back in time and which, in the wrong hands, could have a devastating impact on
the modern world.
Packed with the twists, intrigue, and excitement that
Khoury’s many fans have come to expect, Rasputin’s
Shadow will keep readers turning pages long into the night. Download and start listening now!
