The author is a screenwriter for the BBC series Spooks and Waking the Dead, and his ability to create fast-action mysteries is repeated in this, his fourth book starring FBI agent Sean Reilly. He here uses a nifty time-slip device to recreate the story of Rasputin and wind it into a modern-day thriller of epic proportions. The cinematic sweep of Rasputin’s Shadow must stem from Raymond Khoury’s background as a producer in film and TV.

If you like Raymond Khoury you might also like to read books by Scott Mariani, Michael Cordy and Steve Berry.


The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Readers of Raymond Khoury know that there will not be anything radically different in his long series of novels, but they can be guaranteed a total reliability. The setting is Russia in the early 1900s with the Tsar and Tsarina under the spell of the always-present illiterate peasant Rasputin. What is the hold that the monk has over the royal couple? It’s a power people would kill for. In present-day New York, the faceless killer known only as ‘The Deathless’ (from an old Russian folk tale) has FBI agent Sean Reilly on his trail. What is the connection to events in Russia’s past?

Synopsis

Rasputin's Shadow by Raymond Khoury

Siberia, 1916. A mine turns into a bloodbath when its miners attack each other, savagely and ferociously. Minutes later, two men - a horrified scientist and infamous Russian mystic Rasputin - hit a detonator, blowing up the mine to conceal all evidence of the carnage. New York, present day. FBI agent Sean Reilly is tasked with a new, disturbing case. A Russian embassy attache seems to have committed suicide by jumping out of a fourth-floor window. The apartment's owners have gone missing, while a faceless killer roams New York City, leaving a trail of death in his wake. Reilly's investigation uncovers a deadly search for a mysterious device whose origins reach back to the darkest days of the Cold War and to Imperial Russia and which, in the wrong hands, could have a devastating impact on the modern world.
