The Russian Empire, 1916: At war with Germany, seething with dissent. There is only one man King George V can trust to go into this cauldron of violence and intrigue to bring out his cousin Czar Nicholas II. That man is naval officer Kenneth Ash. And in the glittering cities and frozen wastes of Russia, Ash faces not only the torturers and assassins who will try to stop him, but also a more insidious foe: he must confront the fear, the failure, and the lost love of his own haunting past...and this time, he must win.
