The fate of the last Russian Czar and his family has been one of the most fascinating mysteries of this century. Massie's work presents, not only the last days and ultimate fate of the Romanovs, but also the political and academic bickering over their remains. There's also a long section on the false Anastasia, the late Anna Anderson. O'Keefe's reading is very well done. His training and experience as an opera singer give him excellent diction and enunciation. He keeps the listener's attention with his pacing and inflection, making an already fascinating tale even more so. Especially poignant is his reading of the last days of the imperial family.
