Publisher's Summary

The passage of more than 90 years and the publication of hundreds of books in dozens of languages has not extinguished an enduring interest in the mysteries surrounding the 1918 execution of the last Russian Tsar Nicholas II and his family. The Resurrection of the Romanovs draws on a wealth of new information from previously unpublished materials and unexplored sources to probe the most enduring Romanov mystery of all: the fate of the Tsar's youngest daughter, Anastasia, whose remains were not buried with those of her family, and her identification with Anna Anderson, the woman who claimed to be the missing Grand Duchess.

Refuting long-accepted evidence in the Anderson case, The Resurrection of the Romanovs finally explodes the greatest royal mystery of the 20th century.

Critic Reviews

"Covers the subject so thoroughly and so honestly that this is almost certainly the last book that needs to be written." (Robert K. Massie, author of Nicholas and Alexandra

Soap opera on caffeine!

I really wanted a book like this to explain the end of Romanovs. This definitely is not it! This is more like a soap opera. The narrator sounds like he’s had way too much caffeine! Maybe he’s such a distraction it’s hard to focus. There are much better books on the subject!

Painstaking and thorough, a little laboured at the end

This was a mystery that dominated most of my life one way or another. Of course we all know the outcome, and the real identity of Anna Anderson and the sad fate of Anastasia.

The writers have done a good job documenting the minutiae of this convoluted tale of deception and confusion. In attending to the detail of Anna’s claim, the narrative they provide is somewhat repetitive and towards the end incredibly laboured. But if you are interested in the story and know little about it, this is certainly an authoritative source.
