Moscow, present day. Atlanta lawyer Miles Lord, fluent in Russian and well versed in the country's history, is thrilled to be in Moscow on the eve of such a momentous event. After the fall of Communism and a succession of weak governments, the Russian people have voted to bring back the monarchy. The new tsar will be chosen from the distant relatives of Nicholas II by a specially appointed commission, and Miles' job is to perform a background check on the Tsarist candidate favored by a powerful group of Western businessmen. But research quickly becomes the least of Miles' concerns when he is nearly killed by gunmen on a city plaza.

Suddenly Miles is racing across continents, shadowed by nefarious henchmen. At first, his only question is why people are pursuing him. But after a strange conversation with a mysterious Russian, who steers Miles toward the writings of Rasputin, he becomes desperate to know more; most important, what really happened to the family of Russia's last tsar?

His only companion is Akilina Petrov, a Russian circus performer sympathetic to his struggle, and his only guide is a cryptic message from Rasputin that implies that the bloody night of so long ago is not the last chapter in the Romanovs' story...and that someone might even have survived the massacre. The prophecy's implications are earth-shattering, not only for the future of the tsar and mother Russia, but also for Miles himself.

Steve Berry, national best-selling author of the phenomenal thriller The Amber Room, once again delves into rich historical fact to produce an explosive page-turner. In The Romanov Prophecy, the authentic and the speculative meld into a fascinating and exceptionally suspenseful work of fiction.

Listener Opinions

    " Any ideas on why books aren't rated for language/content? Anyway, the story line was interesting enough but I stopped reading the book because of the language. Note to authors; "F-bombs" really aren't necessary to add emphasis to a situation, it just creates characters who lack the capacity to express themselves with any degree of intellegence "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Carolina | 1/28/2014

    " After reading the fast-paced THIRD SECRET by the same author, I expected more of him. This is a truly boring book... I know Mr. Berry is an expert in Russian studies but I think he was trying to hard to show this. I expected more twists and more fiction on his part... Couldnt finish the book..Just put it down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Serena | 1/25/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Krista | 1/23/2014

    " Started off good, but just kind of dragged on and was pretty far fetched. Interesting topic, but after about 3/4ths of the way I was over it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Catherine | 1/20/2014

    " The Romanov's history is fascinating; this book is not. "

    " How cool to see historical San Francisco connected through all its twists and turns to the Romanovs of Russia! Nicely done. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gerald Kubicki | 10/13/2013

    " The book was a recap of the demise of the Russian Imperial family during the Russian revolution of communism. I learned more than I knew about the event and the author put his own unique twist to the event. The book dragged in a few places and I did not connect with the characters very well. "

    " ga tau kenapa berat banget buat gw menyelesaikan buku ini. mungkin karena plotnya mirip banget dengan model-model da vinci code. mungkin karena tema sejarah rusia bagi gw nggak terlalu menarik. "
