In this commanding book, Robert K Massie sweeps readers back to the extraordinary world of imperial Russia to tell the story of the Romanovs. Nicholas's political naivete, Alexandra's obsession with the corrupt mystic Rasputin, and little Alexis's brave struggle with haemophilia. Against a lavish backdrop of luxury and intrigue, Massie unfolds a powerful drama of passion and history - the story of a doomed empire and the death-marked royals who watched it crumble.
