The Kitchen Boy by Robert Alexander read book description and reviews

Soon to be a major motion picture starring Kristin Scott Thomas (The English Patient), directed by Stefan Ruzowitzky (The Counterfeiters)

Drawing from decades of work, travel, and research in Russia, Robert Alexander re-creates the tragic, perennially fascinating story of the final days of Nicholas and Alexandra Romanov as seen through the eyes of their young kitchen boy, Leonka. Now an ancient Russian immigrant, Leonka claims to be the last living witness to the Romanovs’ brutal murders and sets down the dark secrets of his past with the imperial family. Does he hold the key to the many questions surrounding the family’s murder? Historically vivid and compelling, The Kitchen Boy is also a touching portrait of a loving family that was in many ways similar, yet so different, from any other.

"Ingenious...Keeps readers guessing through the final pages." —USA Today

  • Stunning!

    An absolute pleasure to read. Well written, fast paced, thoughtful---everything a book should be. I love this writer. I had previously read his work, "The Romanov Bride," which is also quite good. I just purchased "Rasputin's Daughter," because this book was so engaging. I can't wait to read that one. This author is clearly knowlegeable about the subject matter, as well as passionate about history. Very recommended!
  • Great book!
