An historical mystery from internationally bestselling author Colin Falconer that you won't be able to put down.

'Murder, scandal and romance all play their part ... plausible and engrossing.' - Woman's Day


Shanghai 1921: When Michael Sheridan jumps into the Whangpoa River to save a Russian refugee, his life changes forever. The girl bears an uncanny resemblance to Princess Anastasia,

But she remembers nothing of her past. Could she really be the royal princess? Did she survive the brutal massacre of her family by Bolshevik revolutionaries two years before?

Unravelling the mystery of Anastasia's identity and past takes them both from the streets of Shanghai to the decadence of pre-war Berlin, from the London of flappers and Charlestons, behind the grim curtain of Bolshevik Russia and finally to New York just before the Wall Street crash.

It may also cost him his life.

WHAT READERS AND REVIEWERS ARE SAYING ABOUT COLIN FALCONER'S 'ANASTASIA'

'Falconer's grasp of period and places is almost flawless ... He's my kind of writer.' - Peter Corris, The Australian

'Falconer weaves a pacy story of obsession, love, greed and corruption ... Really well done." - Sydney Morning Herald

"If you've ever wanted to walk the streets of early twentieth century Shanghai, Berlin, London, or New York, then you will love the wide landscape of this novel. All the big cities come to life with all the political and economic intricacies of that time. From the grittiest of inhabitants, to the most decadent and smug, Falconer gives you a view into the turmoil of the Great War". *****
