It is the time of the Great Terror. Inspector Pekkala - known as the Emerald Eye - was the most famous detective in all Russia. He was the favourite of the Tsar. Now he is the prisoner of the men he once hunted. Like millions of others, he has been sent to the gulags in Siberia and, as far as the rest of the world is concerned, he is as good as dead. But a reprieve comes when he is summoned by Stalin himself to investigate a crime. His mission - to uncover the men who really killed the Tsar and his family, and to locate the Tsar's treasure. The reward for success will be his freedom and the chance to re-unite with a woman he would have married if the Revolution had not torn them apart. The price of failure - death. Set against the backdrop of the paranoid and brutal country that Russia became under the rule of Stalin, Eye of the Red Tsar introduces a compelling new figure to readers of crime fiction… (mere)

paper. Death of Romanovs; fiction. pub 2010 read 2011

The main character is quite interesting, and the historical aspects are also very well done, but the plot itself feels weak in places -- just the idea that would drive by car through Siberia to find the one abandoned mine shaft... I am not sure how this is going to be turned into a series.
But if you are into Russia/Soviet Union in the 1910s/20s you may find this interesting. ( )

Ten years after the murders of the last of the Romanovs, the Tsar's former personal investigator is dragged out of the gulag by Josef Stalin to investigate those deaths and to recover the wealth hidden by the Tsar. Good story, good characters, fascinating history, and all well told. ( )

Wikipedia has informed that this was Paul Watkins, one of my very favorite authors, writing under a pseudonym. I'm not sure I completely detected Watkins in this novel, I did enjoy the writing and the development of the characters but I found the plotting a bit weak. Jumping back and forth in time was mostly effective but I felt it really highlighted how thin the current plot was. For the master detective, Pekkala seemed to miss things that I, a plain old mystery reader, picked up on. But it was well-written and did give me a totally different sense of place, needed on a hot day in pandemic time.

I enjoyed this new to me series starring Inspector Pekkala. The time period was fascinating. I liked the new twist on a surviving Romanov family member. Pekkala was an interesting character and I liked how Eastland went back and forth between past and present in his life. It really helped you understand him as a character. I especially loved the dynamic Eastland built between Pekkala and his brother. I wish that could have been developed even more. The ending was a tad of a let down, but it does allow for the series to continue, so I can forgive it. ( )

The see-saw narrative is a perfect ploy for a thriller, taking in both the dying embers of the Romanov era and the wake-up call that would follow with the purges and the famines, the assassinations and torture chambers. Pervading this breakneck novel is the sense of an age when personal security was a fallacy, to be trusted no more than the medicinal qualities of the raw vodka knocked back in the taverns. This is a country that has thrown itself out of the frying pan and into the fire.
