    This was a wonderful series and very close to the actual history. My only problem was #1 should have been last. She wrote them backwards. If I had known I would have read them in revers.

    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.

But her investigation soon leads to a trail of murder and blackmail spanning 15 years.

    Would you try another book from Carol O'Connell and/or Barbara Rosenblat?

    Not O'Connell's but Rosenblat did a good job reading.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Shorter, less detailed and complex. There was almost too much going on. Malory is a little strange and not realistic.


    Which character – as performed by Barbara Rosenblat – was your favorite?

    Reicher


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes, because Hollywood would fix it up to half way decent.


    Any additional comments?

    I could have done without the bad language.
