The Last Train to Kazan (Stephen Miller)

The Last Train to Kazan
Stephen Miller

Blurb: As World War One rumbles to a close and Russia is wracked by bloody civil war, ex-Tsarist agent Pyotr Ryzhkov is picked up by the Bolshevik secret police. He has two choices: find the Russian Royal Family, or face the firing squad. But as he ventures into the war-torn city where they are rumoured to be held, it seems that one choice is little better than the other.

Yekaterinburg is at the end of the line - a frontier town cut off from Moscow by the White Russians and their allies. It is a nest of foreign spies armed with gold and guns, those determined to sell the family to the highest bidder and local soviets desperate to kill them. Whispers and rumour flood the city, but in the fog of war Ryzhkov knows that only the last man to see the Romanovs will ever know the truth.
