9780060517557: The Secret Plot to Save the Tsar: New Truths Behind the Romanov Mystery

On July 17, 1918, the Tsar, his wife, and 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. But is that the real story of the Romanovs?

In Shay McNeal's controversial and groundbreaking account, 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 to free the Imperial family and guide them to safety.

Most controversial of all is McNeal's belief that one of the plots to rescue the Tsar and his family may, possibly, have succeeded -- and she has compelling evidence to support it.

About the Author:

Shay McNeal, as President of Smith McNeal, built her firm into a multi-million-dollar business. After selling it, she became a political consultant and retired in 1992 to pursue her passion for history and writing. She is now a highly respected historical researcher who has contributed to both the BBC and the Discovery Channel on colonial American history.

Review:

“Ms. McNeal’s thoroughly researched book raises interesting questions about one of the tragic events of the Russian Revolution.” (Dr. Richard Pipes, author of Communism: A History)

“More credible than most recent accounts. ... well-researched ... Some interesting revelations here.” (Booklist)
