This book tells the story of four days in the life of Fluke Kelso, a dissipated, middle-aged former Oxford historian, who is in Moscow to attend a conference on the newly opened Soviet archives. One night he is visited in his room by a former bodyguard of the secret police chief - Beria. The old man claims to have been at Stalin's dacha on the night Stalin had his fatal stroke, and to have helped Beria steal the dictator's private papers.Kelso checks out the old man's story and what starts as an idle enquiry in the Lenin Library soon turns into a murderous chase across night-time Moscow to the White Sea port of Archangel, where the final secret of Stalin has been hidden for almost half a century.
