Historical fiction

The Malinovsky Papers by H. Jones

My familiarity with the Russian revolution and the heated debates surrounding the truth behind the deaths of the Tsar and his family was minimal ( like some people my introduction was through the animated movie Anastasia). I got this book via NetGalley in exchange for an unbiased review and I brushed up my history before I sat down with it.

This tale had a few interesting twists which makes parts of it fun to read, but it turned out to be too big for me to assimilate all the details. I am sure a bigger history buff than me would relish the book but I bit off more than I could chew and ended up skipping a bit here and there in order to finish it.

It is a very detailed story presented with the intention of starting a debate on possibilities and was interestingly written.
