IMPERIAL SPY by Guy Richards


Email this review


The Goleniewski-Romanov Case"" is the book's subtitle. If this makes a reader expect a mystery, that is the publisher's fault. The book should have been clearly labelled ""science- fiction."" The ""Spy"" is a Polish defector of high military rank who has turned over to the United States many secrets about Russian espionage in our midst; he reveals himself as none other than young Romanov, son of the late Czar of Russia, miraculously escaped from the Revolution with the connivance of the Bolsheviks; part of an anti-Bolshevik underground in Eastern Europe, now ready to surface, claim his Empire, and lead anti- communists to victory. That there have been almost as many ""Romanovs"" sighted as flying saucers will not deter readers ready to believe that, (a) the U.S. government, from the CIA through the State Department, with the exception, of course, of the FBI, is riddled with Russians or Russian agents, as Goleniewski asserts;(b) Goleniewski has ""proved"" himself to be Nicholas the Czar. To believe Richards, an ""impartial"" newsman whose ""objectivity"" allows him to print the most vile anti-Semitic propaganda to show what he does not believe in, anything is possible.
