As he prepares for an attack against the general governor of Moscow, Grand Duke Sergei Alexandrovich, George O'Brien writes this diary and confession. Downright nihilistic, George carefully plans his attack while he is tormented by jealousy for his lover's husband. Politics and mysticism, love and sex, scruples and cynicism come together in this novel to mark the lives of the five members of the command who can only be stopped by murder, hanging, or suicide.Mientras se prepara para atacar al gobernador general de Moscú, el Gran Duque Sergei Alexandrovich, George O'Brien escribe este diario y confesión. Puramente nihilista, George planifica su ataque cuidadosamente mientras lo atormentan los celos por el esposo de su amante.

Author Biography

Boris Savinkov was a Russian writer and revolutionary terrorist. As one of the leaders of the Fighting Organisation of the Socialist-Revolutionary Party, he was responsible for the most spectacular assassinations of imperial officials in 1904 and 1905. Boris Savinkov wrote several novels. His most famous are his autobiography Memoirs of a Terrorist and the loosely autobiographical novel Pale Steed. Savinkov's works raised huge controversy among SRs. Many of them disclaimed them as "spoofs" on terrorism. James Womack and Marian Womack are translators.
