The Romanov Legacy by Jenni Wiltz

The Romanov Legacy
Jenni Wiltz
A Historical Thriller
Publisher: Jenni Wiltz

A family murdered in the dead of night. A treasure lost in the throes of revolution. A ninety-year quest that Lenin, Stalin, and the entire Soviet war chest couldn't solve. One woman holds the key to it all: the missing fortune of Nicholas II, last tsar of Russia.

Natalie Brandon believes the stories — that the murdered tsar left behind a secret account intended to provide for his family in exile. Diagnosed with schizophrenia as a child, Natalie can't make anyone believe her, not even her sister, a renowned history professor. Natalie knows the account exists. She knows it can be found. But no one will listen to her until a blond, blue-eyed Russian spy kidnaps her, claiming she's the only one who can help him find it.

Constantine Dashkov never intended to kidnap a woman, let alone the wrong one. Sent to coerce Professor Beth Brandon into helping locate the tsar's account, Constantine breaks into her apartment—and finds a lethal Russian spetsnaz unit, Vympel, waiting for him. He escapes with his life … and with the wrong hostage.

Just as brilliant as her famous sister, Natalie is tormented by a recurring auditory hallucination, a voice she claims belongs to an angel named Belial. Belial, she says, told her exactly how to find the tsar's missing treasure. Their first step is to recover two coded letters written by the tsar's daughters in captivity. Those letters contain the password to their father's secret account. Natalie's ramblings make Constantine uneasy, but he knows he can't abandon her to to the trained killers on their trail. Natalie convinces him that the surest way to survive is to get those letters before Vympel does.

But Russian Prime Minister Maxim Starinov also wants the letters and will do anything to get them. Natalie and Constantine must outrun Starinov's lethal spetsnaz unit as they chase the letters from San Francisco to Moscow to London. The hunt draws in Natalie's sister, Constantine's partner, and a loyal Russian family whose only mission is to preserve the tsar's legacy. With nothing more than Belial's strange whisperings to guide them, Natalie and Constantine fight for their lives and each other in a race to protect the tsar's legacy from a greedy despot.
