Present-day Russia is the setting for this stunning new novel from Robert Harris, author of the bestsellers Fatherland and Enigma.          Archangel 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, Kelso is visited in his hotel room by an old NKVD officer, a former bodyguard of the secret police chief Lavrenty 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, among them a notebook.          Kelso decides to use his last morning in Moscow to check out the old man's story. But what starts as an idle inquiry in the Lenin Library soon turns into a murderous chase across nighttime Moscow and up to northern Russia--to the vast forests near the White Sea port of Archangel, where the final secret of Josef Stalin has been hidden for almost half a century.          Archangel combines the imaginative sweep and dark suspense of Fatherland with the meticulous historical detail of Enigma. The result is Robert Harris's most compelling novel yet. From the Paperback edition.… (altro)

A great thriller from a wonderful writer.

Watched the 2005 BBC production with Daniel Craig (Aug 31, 2017). Not so good, but certainly watchable. But, I'm reading Tom Rob Smith's "The Secret Speech" so, evocative. Riga for the town of Archangel certainly puts me in the mood.

A quest to find Stalin's notebook in the 1990s turns into something much more. Historian Christopher 'Fluke' Kelso wants the notebook to revive his academic career. Kelso isn't the only one who wants the notebook. US journalist RJ O'Brian knows a good story when he sees one. He joins Kelso. Hot on their trial is politician and ex-KGB agent Vladimir Mamantov.

This is the third novel I've read by Robert Harris and it's every bit as good as the others. The novel is intense, the historical detail laudable and the plot gripping. Although the characters aren't as deeply developed as they could've been, the novel's strengths make up for it. ( )

Strange plot–is Stalin returning?—strange setting, but fun and readable.

> estimates that some sixty-six million people were killed in the USSR between 1917 and 1953 – shot, tortured, starved mostly, frozen or worked to death. Others say the true figure is a mere forty-five million. Who knows? Neither estimate, by the way, includes the thirty million now known to have been killed in the Second World War. To put this loss in context: the Russian Federation today has a population of roughly 150 million. ( )

Another excellent book by Robert Harris, taking a slice of our historical past and twisting it into a scary possibility ( )
