Inhaltsangabe

The Man from St Petersburg is a dark tale of family secrets and political consequences. Ken Follett's masterful storytelling brings to life the danger of a world on the brink of war.

It is just before the outbreak of World War I, and Britain must enlist the aid of Russia. Czar Nicholas' nephew is to visit London for secret naval talks with Lord Walden, who has lived in Russia and has a Russian wife, Lydia. But there are other people who are interested in the arrival of Prince Alexei: the Waldens' only daughter, Charlotte - wilful, idealistic, and with an awakening social conscience; Basil Thompson, head of the Special Branch; and, above all, Feliks Kschessinky, the ruthless Russian anarchist. No one could have foretold that Lydia should recognize Feliks or that she might put her own daughter's life at risk for his sake.

As the secret negotiations progress, the destinies of these characters become ineluctably enmeshed. And as Europe prepares for the catastrophe of war, the final private tragedy which will shatter the complacency of the Waldens is acted out.

Very exciting story.

It is the first Audible book read by Richard Armitage for me. I don't regret having chosen this one. Armitage has a great voice and it's much fun listening to him. I've read the novel in German, so it was easy for me to understand. The story is very exciting,every time the asassin seems to get caught,it comes otherwise. I'm looking forward to listening to other novels read by Richard Armitage.

Easy listening

British actor Richard Armitage would probably have my undivided attention reading a telephone book ;-) He has a pleasant and easy to listen to voice that varies with the characters he's portraying.

This makes up for some shortcomings of the story itself... and the over-dramatic finale, but all in, easy listening with a historcal background of the time leading up to WW1
