Antony Beevor, an Englishman, is the author of novels and historical works, which have been all the time at the top of the lists of the classics not only in Great Britain and have been selling in millions of copies. A brilliant narrator, he knows how, without resorting to sensation, to draw the attention of readers. Olga Chekhova, was an outstanding film actress of striking beauty in the years of nazism, a niece of novelist and playwright Anton Pavlovich Chekhov; she was considered to have been close to Hitler. Managing to flee from Bolshevik Moscow to Berlin in 1920, she started working for the Soviet espionage. Through the moving story of the talented family, Beevor describes an entire age, which restructured human destinies. This was one of the most dramatic periods, covering a series of tempestuous and cruel developments: a revolution, a civil war, a dictatorship, pernicious terror and a world conflict. The Mystery of Olga Chekhova has the ring of a terror story of exile and espionage, of compromising and survival in ruthless times.
