Eccentric and fiercely independent Inspector Vasiliev exposes a conspiracy by a high ranking nobleman and a top official in the secret police to assassinate the tsar in late imperial Russia. He finds unexpected help from Irina, a member of the revolutionary underground, with whom he falls in love. "To Kill a Tsar is unique among books about Russia written by western authors: being extremely rich in details it contains no factual errors at all." -Alexei Miller, Senior Researcher in the Institute of Scientific Information in Humanities of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow "In this masterful thriller, Al Rieber (alias, G.K. George) meets us at the crossroads of history and literature. He deftly portrays the tensions and dynamics of life in Imperial Russia on the eve of the assassination of Tsar Alexander II in 1881, an event that set the stage for the Russian Revolution. In the process the author creates unforgettable characters such as Inspector Vasili Vasiliev, the Swan, and the Magician." -Ben Eklof, Professor of History, Indiana University "To Kill a Tsar is a true thriller, with all the delightful trimmings of a masterful historical narrative. Alfred Rieber (alias, G.K. George) lures you into the turbulent, terrorist times of Russia in the 1880s, from glittering balls in noble palaces to mystical forests in the foothills of the Ural Mountains. Erotic rituals of a religious sect called the Jumpers come frighteningly alive in this compelling narrative that is ethnographically and historically rich with plausible detail." -Marjorie Mandelstam Balzer, Research Professor at the Center for Eurasian, Russian and East European Studies and in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, Georgetown University "With his unsurpassed knowledge of Russian history, Alfred Rieber (alias, G.K. George) brings the terrorist crisis of the late 1870s and early 1880s to life in this exciting historical thriller. To Kill a Tsar traces the conspiracy that led to the assassination of Tsar Alexander II in a plot filled with surprising twists and dramatic encounters between ardent young radicals and their adversaries from the security police. Along with compelling portraits of such real-life historical figures as the ill-fated Tsar, Rieber has created a complex and appealing hero, Inspector Vasiliev. Guided by the inspector, a master of disguise, and his faithful peasant sergeant, readers meet aristocrats and beggars and travel from high society salons to the slum hideouts of thieves and revolutionaries. To Kill a Tsar offers fascinating speculation about historical "what-ifs" along with expert historical reconstruction. I recommend To Kill a Tsar to all readers who love action, intrigue, and vivid characters." -Adele Lindenmeyr, Professor of History, Villanova University
