John Browne releases his novel, “Hidden Account of the Romanovs” (published by iUniverse)—set in World War I (WWI) and the Russian Civil War. Preparing for President Putin’s state visit in 2003, the Bank of England is instructed to close Russian Imperial accounts. The Bank’s investigation follows a Grenadier officer’s career through a story that encompasses two of history’s greatest mysteries, the murder of the Russian Imperial Family and the Ml6-led plot to kill Rasputin.
The book explores the true nature of WWI trench life with actions involving the Prince of Wales, Winston Churchill, the Royal Flying Corps, the imprisonment and murder of the Romanov family, DNA evidence and the raising of Bolshevik seed money on Wall Street.
Excerpt from “Hidden Account of the Romanovs”:
“‘Sir,’ said the Kaiser in a low voice smacking of sarcasm, ‘I can see why you are a master diplomat. It is a profession which has been described to me often as refined politeness, where lies and a whiff of cologne are used to cover treachery, ruthless barbarism and the stench of rotting wounds as noble ideals are subjugated to selfish interests.’”
