The Romanov Cross
- By: Robert Masello
- Narrated by: Paul Boehmer
- Length: 18 hrs and 16 mins
Army epidemiologist Frank Slater is facing a court-martial, but after his punishment is mysteriously lifted, he is offered a job no one else wants - to travel to a small island off the coast of Alaska and investigate a potentially lethal phenomenon. The permafrost has begun to melt, exposing bodies from a colony that was wiped out by the dreaded Spanish flu of 1918. Frank must determine if the thawed remains still carry the deadly virus in their frozen flesh and, if so, ensure that it doesn't come back to life.

What disappointed you about The Romanov Cross?
I don't think that Mr. Masello did any research for this book. Having been in the Army for 8 years and deployed to Afghanistan, the book started wrong for me. Mr. Masello had no idea how a real medivac happens. Also, I was confused as to whether Dr. Slater was supposed to be in Army or Marines. I hoped the book would get better. It didn't. The history of the Romanov was interesting except for the fact that it was copied almost word for word from The Romanovs: The Final Chapter by Robert K. Massie. Over all, I found the story cliched and rather boring.
