This book is first class and from the very start you are propelled into the period of the time. I listen to my books when I walk to the shops or on my local forest and I just could not wait for a walk to come fast enough. If there is one small fault and that is although the book holds you from beginning to the end, the end is a bit weak.

I know a lot of people like this book and it certainly has an excellent story. However, the writer's style kills the books for me. The writer is dedicated to flashbacks -- we have long episodes of flashback. Some serve a purpose to give a background of Pekala's life but to me there are just so many of them that they break the flow of the plot.
Looking for the murderer of the last Tsar certainly makes for a gripping story. And when that story is being told the book is interesting. However, the constant interruptions of the story with these flashbacks just killed the book for me. I will not be reading any more of this author as I understand that all his books contain flashbacks. It is simply an unappealing style for me, but for readers who don't object, this is good book. My rating of the book is due to the flashback which I find to interrupting and made the real story seem disjointed.
