Sometimes mysteries are never solved. Sometimes there are no answers. But Dr. Laura Pavlov, an American forensic archaeologist, is about to unravel a mystery that promises to solve one of the twentieth century’s greatest enigmas.

Dr. Pavlov is 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 by their captors in July 1918. When Pavlov discovers two bodies perfectly preserved in permafrost in a disused mine shaft, they offer dramatic new clues to the disappearance of the Romanovs and, in particular, their famous daughter, Princess Anastasia, whose murder has always been shrouded in doubt.  What Pavlov discovers is about to change the accepted course of world history and hurl her back into the past—and into a maelstrom of deceit, secrets, and lies.

Based in part on historical fact, The Romanov Conspiracy is a high-tension story of trust and betrayal, of a fight between good and evil, and of love and friendship thwarted by war, all set against one of the most bloody and brutal revolutions in world history.

    " This was a great retelling of what happened in Russia when the Czar and his family were kidnapped and held in Ekaterinburg. So many live and vibrant characters from the Princess Anastasia and Sorg, to the people who tried to save her from the fateful night in 1918. You get to see what these people did to try to save the Romanov's. While Dr. Pavlov is doing a dig in Russia she stumbles across a frozen person with keys to a long ago mystery she seeks out someone who sent her on this path, and in so she learns so much about the people who had nothing left to loose. Definitely a gripping thriller and that had me pulled in until I could put it down. Took four days off and on to read this book. I don't know that any review can do it justice it's that good a book. Can't wait to see what Mr. Meade comes up with next! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe Skurla | 2/3/2014

    " An historical novel which attempts to describe an alternative ending to the Anastasia myth. Marries a bit of Pasternak with Kostova (The Historian) to provide a very satisfying read. "

I took my time in reading it and everytime I picked it up this feeling came about me. I'm a history person and the Romanov lore has always astounded me. Glenn Meade did an excellent job with this story and I cannot wait to read more by him. "
