The Secret Plot to Save the Tsar: The Truth Behind the Romanov Mystery


The Secret Plot to Save the Tsar: The Truth Behind the Romanov Mystery Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The tragic fate of the Romanovs is well known: on July 17, 1918, the Tsar, his wife, their four daughters and ailing heir were led down to a basement in Ekaterinburg, Russia, and murdered in cold blood by a Bolshevik firing squad. The DNA analysis and identification of the bones were the conclusive proof the world was waiting for, and the case was considered closed. Until now.

Shay McNeal's controversial, groundbreaking new account challenges this accepted view. She presents convincing new scientific analysis questioning the authenticity of the "Romanov" bones and uncovers an extraordinary tale of espionage and double dealing that has been kept secret for more than eighty years.

Based on extensive study of American, Allied and Bolshevik documents, including recently declassified intelligence files, McNeal reveals the existence of a shadowy group of operatives working at the highest levels of the Allied, Bolshevik and German governments to free the Imperial family and guide them to safety.

Most controversially, McNeal believes that one of the plots to rescue the Tsar and his family may, possibly, have succeeded — and she has compelling evidence to support it.

Told with the pace of a thriller, this highly readable and vigorously researched book forces a dramatic reappraisal of one of the most enduring mysteries of the twentieth century.


Includes bibliographical references (p. 284-300) and index.


The author brings superb research efforts to this book.
