KIRKUS REVIEW

To any lover of historical novels and historical mysteries this book will prove a real gift. More than 100 years have elapsed since the unsolved death of Alexander the first. Liubimov sets forth here his theory that the emperor did not die on the throne, but as a voluntary exile in Siberia, under the assumed name of Fedor Kuzmitch, a simple peasant and repenting monk. The material, though containing new data, is controversial but provides an absorbing historical and psychological drama, with a vivid picture of the court life of the times as setting.
