Review

"That perfect but rare blend of history, sense of place, human tragedy, drama and atmosphere" (Susan Hill)

"A moving and factual account of the family's last days... Helen Rappaport has brought her subjects back to life with a sombre intensity, focusing on the last fortnight of their verifiable existence in their claustrophobic mansion prison... A deeply touching anniversary tribute." (Independent on Sunday)

"Helen Rappaport follows the principal characters over the 13 days leading up to the murders. She skilfully weaves together the grimly repetitive routine of the doomed family with the high drama engulfing the killers as they added the finishing touches to their terrible plan... Rappaport's countdown format makes Ekaterinburg freshly compelling..." (New Statesman)

"Rappaport has uncovered fascinating details of the local politicking and pressures to apply a final coup de grace. She shows how Lenin was closely consulted on the decision to kill the family, but took great care to cover his links... Rappaport has succeeded in capturing a frenetic, terrifying period of modern history and showing how a brutal, but human, man and his family became victims of the pent-up fury of the people he had systematically ground underfoot." (Sunday Tribune (Ireland))

"... Well researched...Helen Rappenport successfully evokes the claustrophobic atmosphere within the house." (Saturday Telegraph)

Book Description

Telling the story in a compellingly new and dramatic way, Ekaterinburg brings the tragic final 13 days in the lives of the Romanovs vividly alive against the backdrop of a Russia in turmoil.
