Publisher's Summary

An ingenious, fast-paced historical thriller from the author of the New York Times best seller 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 mindcontrol 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 believe 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 listeners ensconsed long into the night.

    "Oh those Russians!"
    If you could sum up Rasputin's Shadow in three words, what would they be?

    Dramatic
    Original
    Interesting


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    ( Small spoiler alert ) the mind control device was very interesting conceptually.
    Some of the personal relationship didn't drive the story, but really, most everything in this is damn interesting.


    What does Richard Ferrone bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His accents and timing are impecable. Story would not be the same without him bringing the characters , and their nuances, to life.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Actually, I might, all things being equal.


    Any additional comments?

    This outing started abit slowly, and has many moving pieces, which sometimes are abit awkward to follow all the way. That said, I was grabbed by this early on, and paid attention thru to the end.

    The performer really brings it here, and I highly recommend this.
