Publisher's Summary

A high government official is shot on the street, and the hunt for the killer begins. The search leads all over the world, netting a series of suspects whose only connection is their innocence - at least of this crime. But The Case of Comrade Tulayev, the best novel about the Stalinist purges, is also a classic tale of risk and adventure that stands beside For Whom the Bell Tolls. It is a masterpiece, now available again after 30 years.

    "Enthralling!"

    Finally, after thirty years, it is available and it is essential to anyone who wants to know about Stalin and what happened during that period. It is also an interesting book written very well, which keeps the listener enthralled, but what makes it even more exciting is knowing that you are reading about history at the same time.

    Story
    "Look behind stage at Russian "Trial""

    I was referred to this story by Christopher Hitchens and gave it a shot. It was dark and well written but sad in its overall cold war conclusions. Hitchens was one of our true intellectuals and that's what sold me on the book. Historically, a must read if you are interested in Russian history and a nation based on lies. Lot's of history behind Victor Serge a revolutionary worth knowing about.

    "required reading"

    Beautifully written, thought provoking.Worth rereading many times. Clear in depth picture of Stalinist Russia, city and country, and the impact of the purges on the public.
