While the First World War rages on, a reluctant British spy stationed in the heart of the Russian empire is handed the most difficult assignment of his career: orchestrate the death of Grigori Rasputin, the mad monk, the Tsarina's most trusted adviser and the surrogate ruler of the nation. Petrograd, the seat of Russian power, is a powderkeg ready to explode, and world history is made as various factions including the British crown, the Russian aristocracy, the Bolsheviks, and the Tsar’s secret police engage in a power struggle over the many plots to assassinate Rasputin.
