In the summer of 1909, an unassuming English bobby crossed paths with Russian royalty. Now, a century later, the secret entrusted to him is about to be revealed.

Richard Eusden is on his way to work in London one unremarkable winter morning when he is intercepted by his ex-wife, who asks him to ferry an old attach#65533; case to their friend Marty Hewitson in Brussels. Richard expects to be back in London within the day, but in Belgium, Marty is nowhere to be found. Instead, Richard comes face-to-face with a ruthless kidnapper and his outrageous demand: the attach#65533; case in exchange for Marty's life.

The desperate attempt to save his old friend sets Richard off on a race across Germany and then north, first to Copenhagen, then to Helsinki. Whatever the contents of the case, they link a Danish tycoon and his family's dark secret to the deaths of several innocent people. And now that secret is beginning to tug at the threads of a larger mystery--one involving the fate of the Grand Duchess Anastasia, last of the Romanovs.

Clever.Robert Goddard never disappoints.

I absolutely adore Robert Goddard. However, this is the first book of his that I took back to the library after only having read about a quarter of it. I found it turgid and just plain uninteresting and got to the point where I wondered why I was reading it at all.

The main character did not grip me at all, and the story line just didn't do it for me either.

Sorry Robert, I am hoping the next one I borrow is better.....
