Description
"Gordon Pinner es un joven periodista destinado en París en 1930. Aunque consciente de las injusticias cometidas por los bolcheviques tras la caída del imperio de los zares, Pinner es también un idealista que alberga una honda simpatía por la Revolución y que no dudará en infiltrarse en la comunidad de rusos exiliados en la capital francesa cuando sus camaradas del servicio secreto soviético se lo pidan. De la mano de una hermosa y enigmática bailarina conocerá los restos de un imperio desaparecido y acabará cuestionándose sus ideales y viajando a Moscú y a Leningrado para encontrar a una niña huérfana. Esa chiquilla podría ser la clave para salvar su vida y, al mismo tiempo, impedir que un aristócrata exiliado financie un ejército destinado a revertir el curso de la Historia para recobrar el esplendor de los Románov."--,Provided by publisher.
Description
Gordon Pinner is a young journalist stationed in Paris in 1930. Although aware of the injustices committed by the Bolsheviks after the fall of the empire of the Tsars, Pinner is also an idealist who harbors a deep sympathy for the Revolution and who will not hesitate to infiltrate the community of exiled Russians in the French capital when their comrades from the Soviet secret service ask them to do so. From the hand of a beautiful and enigmatic dancer he will discover the remains of a vanished empire and will end up questioning his ideals and traveling to Moscow and Leningrad to find an orphan girl. That little girl could be the key to saving his life and, at the same time, prevent an exiled aristocrat from financing an army destined to reverse the course of history in order to regain the splendor of the Romanovs.
